3. How to infuse personal style into your Cheongsam
When it comes to creating a Cheongsam that reflects your unique style, the key is in the details. Let’s delve deeper into the creative elements you’ll explore in our course:
Choice of Neckline and Collar
Experiment with neckline and collar styles, from the timeless mandarin collar to more contemporary variations. Implement your favourite style into your own Cheongsam! Our course guides you through the process of selecting and crafting the perfect neckline and collar to suit your style.
Cheongsam Opening Styles
From the classic round button opening to the square button opening and straight button openings, you have a range of options to consider! Each opening style carries its own charm and allows you to make a unique statement with your Cheongsam.
Sleeves can add character to your Cheongsam! Do you envision delicate cap sleeves or do you prefer the drama of petal sleeves? Perhaps, long sleeves resonate better with your style? The choice is yours!
Nothing complements personal style like a tailored fit! During the course, you’ll learn how to create a Cheongsam that fits you flawlessly, embracing your body shape and accentuating your best features.
The choice of fabric sets the tone and style of the cheongsam, making it suitable for casual gatherings, formal occasions, or both!
