Looking for a custom made chinese dress (qi pau)

Hi Ladies, I'm not sure if you can help me out but I'm looking to find a custom made Chinese wedding dress for tea ceremony. I'm a white woman so I don't really fit the standard sizes (I lack the curves and my hips start lower).

  • NM I found a dress maker on ebay :) They do custom dresses for $77 so I'm giving it a shot. I'll let you know how it goes :)

  • I just got the dress http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=331094788972
    The seller was very sweet, and for an additional 7 dollars she made it to my measurements!
    It took 1 month from the time i placed the order to the time I recieved it :) The fit is perfect!

    Not a bad way to spend $80 much cheaper then the $380 the store by my house wanted to charge. Given perhaps hers were higher quality but for a dress I'm going to wear only for 2 hours only to switch into my bridal gown for the rest of the day... not bad. :)
