Vntg 1970's Chinese Cheongsam Inspired Gown - Truth, Love, Joy

This is quite a gown. Vintage Chinese Cheongsam Inspired...with Chinese Calligraphy, and Landscape in ivory beading. Black crepe.

The translation of the Calligraphy around neck and on bodice into skirt contains Truth, Virtue, Love, Peace, Happiness, Joy and Longevity.

Sexy with its side slits all the way up to the waist! I would imagine that it might have been worn with leggies or perhaps some sort of skinny pants? Or...maybe not.

The bodice has a mandarin collar, cumberbun in ivory crepe at waist. Long sleeves. Zips up back.

The skirt is same in front and is cut all the way up to the waistband.

The beading is intense, and....glued on...and it is completely permanent (it is not smooth to touch...this is not a problem or defect, just a description as some beading is glassy smooth)

The dress is fully lined in bodice and skirt.

PLEASE....always ask for help if needed with size. Thank you.
