Japanese Sewing Books Qi Pao Sew Along
Fabric guide for this dress is usually thick silk material with elaborate embroidery, but a normal cotton will do just fine since little girls grew up so fast and will only wear the dress once a per year.
As for me, I have my formal red Qi Pao that I wore once for a Gu Zheng competition, and a fun cotton one that I probably will never wear. Because I prefer my flip flop and normal clothes for everyday, even on that day :)
