Gorgeous olive green vintage cheongsam Mandarin dress by Esme. It feels like a dream on, and even more so if you get it tailored to your measurements - cheongsam's are meant to fit like a glove, baby! This dress is 100% Rayon, the first synthetic silk, and is light weight and comfortable. There is a side zipper to the armpit on the right, then snaps covered with traditional frog closures to the Mandarin collar. White piping and a modest side slit also add texture and detail.

This dress is actually part of my personal collection, but after intending to get it tailored forever, and not, I'm going to let it go to someone who will appreciate it in the manner in which it should be appreciated. I originally bought this dress at the Seattle Vintage Fashion Fair in the late 1980s.

I recently had the dress cleaned at a local eco-friendly cleaner and hasn't been worn. The fabric has come loose from the piping in a 1/4" spot down on the hem - an easy repair or an easy ignore depending on how you roll. The frogs show some minimal wear from normal use. I've had the button stitching professionally reinforced (but maintained the original thread) because the buttons were a bit loose. The dress is a stunner for any season, and always on-trend.

30 years as a vintage collector and hours of additional research help me to do my best to accurately describe and identify items before listing. Please feel free to share additional information if you have knowledge about a particular item - I love to learn. And if you're not happy with an item you can always contact me to work out a solution.

I love sending my items as gifts - let me know if you'd like wrapping or a personal gift card.

*I'm happy to ship anywhere in the world. If you live outside the United States, please send me a message for a shipping quote to your country.
