Vintage 1950s Ao Dai Silk Taffeta Vietnamese Cheongsam Dress Sz M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a vintage Ao Dai Vietnamese dress made of beautiful quality lightweight silk taffeta, known as paper taffeta.  The Ao Dai is similar to the Chinese Cheongsam, but has high slits at either side that go up to the waist and would be worn with pants. There are no pants with this vintage Ao Dai, but you can use plain pants (the Vietnamese use either white, black or pastel pants depending on their age and marital status), or try a Western variation, perhaps shorts or leggings.  This was custom made and is entirely hand sewn.  It closes at the neck and along the right side with a series of snaps culminating in two hooks and eyes at the hip.  This vintage Ao Dai is printed in a striking floral design in tones of red, pink, green, blue, grey and white.
