QIPAO DATE DETAIL
*See 'SOCIAL' tab below for more images.
Also available in Satin, please see the 'Satin Qipao Date'.
GPSL's Qipao Date is immaculately fitted with an elaborate fishtail and train. Fine straps, fully lined. Bust cups are sewn inside the bodice for additional support.
The camisole and lower back are overlaid in a delicate hand-beaded French lace. You may opt for additional French lace down the side seams from the waist to hip. Centre back buttons are also optional. Please select these choices in the drop-down menus.
If you would like slightly more coverage over your bodice, you may opt for the 'Love Moi' Gown. Please note: Aside from the bodices, the Love Moi and Qipao gowns are identical.
Each Qipao Date is hand crafted. Due to the extensive hand cutting, hand placement and hand sewing of the French lace onto each gown, every garment is unique.

2. Ivory French Lace on Nude Stretch Crêpe | Excluding French Lace down the Side Seams | Excluding Centre Back Buttons
Bustle ribbons are sewn down the centre back seam of the lining, should you wish to shorten the train. Some of our customers like the bustle tied when they dance to manoeuvre around more freely. To achieve the bustle (train reduction), tie two of the three bustle ribbons together inside the lining. There are two bustle height options depending on which two ribbons you tie together. We recommend tying a double bow.
Please view an example of a tied bustle to reduce the trains drag below and in the slideshow above (Nude Crêpe/third image).
