I got an email from Frances last October, inquiry on whether I can replicate and custom design a bridal cheongsam for her wedding. And she told me she's located in Chicago, Illinois US! Yeay, I'm so happy and excited~! Another international bride client. Happy because Frances trusted me and gave me the honor to custom make her cheongsam; excited because the design of her cheongsam is going to be so special~

Frances showed me the sample pictures of her desire cheongsam design. It's actually from a real bride named Gladys who had her cheongsam custom made by a famous design Barney Cheng, Hong Kong!
She had her wedding in Bali. Here I share with you the master piece of the designer's cheongsam. All photos by Samuel Lippke Studio's website credited.

It's a full laces cap sleeves cheongsam with see-thru illusion chest-line and bare-back and beautiful patch flower details all over the cheongsam. After a few emails of discussion between Frances and me, she finally decided on the sketch design I proposed below:

Custom Make Cheongsam Sketch for Frances
 A soft full lace material layered over a champagne matte satin. Cap Sleeves in see-thru illusion chest-line and bare-back; A-line skirt with a side split and Chapel length train.

This is the full lace material and champagne matte satin I proposed to Frances for her custom make cheongsam design:
I'm glad I have the similar soft full lace material and patch laces
to try to replicate and achieve the designer's cheongsam ♥
After finalized the materials and design, it took me more than 2 months time complete Frances wedding cheongsam! Here are some close-up shoots I took before sending it - my 'precious' creation, off to FedEx and courier it (all my 'heart' work) to Chicago!

Mandarin high collar with patch laces and embellishments
♥ More lovely patch laces on the illusional chest-line ♥
I 'flow' the patch laces at both sides of the cheongsam to give a illusion of accentuate the waist-line
♥ More patch laces on the one-sided split to draw away the straight tangent ♥
Sew a matching lace scalloping for the cheongsam's train!
I'm so glad the cheongsam reach Chicago on-time and Frances was happy when she received it.
Here's what she emailed me when she first saw her custom make cheongsam mock pictures: "Wow! It looks so great, I am very happy!" And I'm very happy as well! Thank you for your kind words ♥
Congratulations, Frances! Even thought we both had never meet before face-to-face, but personally I'm thankful and honored that you've thrust me on custom making your wedding cheongsam across half the globe! Thanks to online internet - Google, Skype and Paypal!
