Exceptional long Chinese traditional red silk satin lined dress with gold brocade chinese birds and a round red woven Chinese symbol. The bodice features a side closure with hand-made red frogs edged in gold lame. The entire dress is edged in gold lame. The skirt features 2 side slits...one on each side which measure 28" long. The dress is very fitted and it gets narrower as it extends down to the hem. There is a long side zipper.
The fitted Chinese dress is a bright RED, not the colour in the photograph. The under-arm measures 36" wide; shoulder-to-shoulder is 16"; 28" waist; cap sleeves 4" long center; 58" long and lined with red taffeta which has a soft hand.
The dress is in excellent condition. It might have possibly been worn once and maybe not at all. There is a tiny pulled thread and a pin head pale, pale white stain that sits on the surface of the fabric. It should come out in cleaning. You have to hunt under the light to notice these minimal defects. I am sure it was tailored made for the woman.
LOOK to see the wonderful Chinese green silk brocade coat that I will enter in my shop...next.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the hurricane I am having difficulty getting the pictures of the red dress in my shop. The pictures of the green coat come up instead. This will be listed separately when the internet connection is repaired. I also have difficulty sending emails.
