The collar

The collar of Chinese wear Qipao / Cheongsam is meticulously made, especially the buttonhole loop on the collar, which serves as the finishing touch.

The slits

For convenient movement and display of the slender legs of women Qipao / Cheongsam generally has two big slits at either side of the hem.
