The Cheongsam Challenge: Day 10

Pretty in Pink! That is what Day 10 of Suzanne’s Cheongsam Challenge looks like today.

Good day to everyone. This cheongsam is fashioned from a piece of fabric that is completely covered  with 3D organdie rosettes. It is ultra feminine and oh so light and gentle to the touch.

Not wanting to ‘trample’ on the rosettes, I did not have any front opening. Hence the silver grey satin trim is only for the collar and sleeve edges. And, the same trim is used for a simple, singular Chinese style button at the collar.

The ensemble is completed with simple accessories and my self-beaded pink sandals!

Seated outside against the garden setting, it was a good idea to sip my coffee from my favourite porcelain cup and saucer, adorned with a bird nestled among pink and white florets! (At 93, I still love drinking my beverages out of cups with cute decorations because it brings a smile to my face. In that way, I have remained young at heart.)

I thank the good Lord for the daily blessing of simple pleasures.

Have a wonderful day! God bless.
