I'm definitely getting one made - however I need to tone a few things up before I meet the dressmaker. =) I probably will have the traditional look but keep a little lose fitting. No need to split any seams!!
We have several asian shops in Houston so hopefully we'll find a good. My aunt from Taiwan may be able to help me get some really good material. I wish I could wear the ones my Mom made for her wedding. Unfortunately my american genes gave me a slightly bigger frame. LOL... My mom is like a 0-2 and I'm between 4-6.
