Measurements and muslin fitting
A muslin fitting is an essential step in the custom qipao process, ensuring that your final dress achieves the perfect fit and silhouette. During this stage, a mock-up of your qipao, is created using muslin fabric.
During the muslin fitting, various aspects of the dress are evaluated, and the team will make any necessary alterations to achieve a flawless fit.
Hand embroidery, quality check and pressing
The skilled embroiderer gradually builds upon the design, adding depth and dimension by layering stitches and incorporating different thread colors,. This process requires a high level of skill and attention to detail.
Once the embroidery is complete, the embroiderer makes any necessary adjustments or additions to ensure the design is impeccable.
The completed embroidered Qipao undergoes a thorough quality check and is carefully pressed to give it a polished, finished look.
Final fitting and alteration
During the final fittings, you will try on the completed qipao for the first time. The tailor will be present to make minor adjustments or alterations to fine-tune the qipao's fit.
The final fittings also allow you to explore different accessories and styling options that complement the qipao.
Once all alterations and adjustments have been completed to your satisfaction, the final approval of the qipao is obtained.
