Thanks to all of you. I hope my review brought to you something about Vietnam, about what I'm proud of, and that you are getting to know through my review or self- educated something more about a small part of the world - Vietnam, my country....

What a beautiful garment. I looked it up on wikipedia and now, like the other reviewers have more knowledge about the aodai. You are very creative and have created a beautiful aodai.

OMG, this is so stunning!!!! Thank you so much for reviewing this Aodai. I noticed this was your profile pic, but could not see it very clearly, so was so happy you reviewed. Truly inspiring, I can't even say. Please say more about ironing interfacing to the edges of the cut Aodai for machine stitching and then removing it for hand stitching. I am guessing that the interfacing was not caught in the machine stitching. The other amazing thing about your Aodai is the fabric and how you brilliantly cut it out to take utmost advantage of the print. So amazing, thank you so much for sharing.

A beautiful garment, and a clever marriage of East and West, tradition and modernity.

Wow, thank you all so much for finding this review intersting and beautiful dress with AODAI's history. I actually made some more pants with different colors: dark purple, light green. They all look good with the dress.
