Green long sleeve cheongsam with stripes and floral motifs

This is a green cheongsam with vertical stripes and floral motifs allover. It is a unique piece as it has greyish-green puffy long sleeves in chiffon. The cuffs resemble that of a westernized shirt. This belonged to Datin Aw Cheng Hu. Born in 1914, she was the daughter of Mr Aw Boon Par. She wore this cheongsam when she was in her late 40s and 50s. Datin Aw would personally select her fabrics from Modern Silk Store and Chotirmall along High Street, Singapore, before sending them to Shanghainese tailors who were sought after for their cheongsam making skills.
