Chinese brocade dress

Check it out: I made a dress out of blue Chinese brocade! When I saw the brocade at the fabric store I just knew I had to buy some! I was inspired by this Madewell dress (notice the side slits). The dress has a boxy shape with no darts, a side zipper, and side slits at the hem. I did some hand-stitching for the hem, and the whole thing took me about 7 hours to make.
