Laure is a mix-and-match pattern with multiple dress, collar, and sleeve options. Starting point to this pattern was the classic qipao dress which dates back to 1920s Shanghai. Next, we added a number of options, so that Laure can be used to make a wide range of dresses, suitable for all four seasons. Go for a shift dress or a dropwaist dress, and combine it with different standing collar options and several sleeve options. Laure is a collaboration with Ann Tang-Se and Annemie Simons.
Laure closes with a hidden zipper in the back. In the front, you can add Chinese buttons (‘frogs’) to the Qipao version; they will purely decorative.
