  • The dress I picked out was $120 plus shipping costs, but I knew it would likely cost more for the extra fabric, which is pretty standard for plus-size orders
  • However, the most pleasantly surprising part of my experience with this company is that within a week of placing my order, I received an email informing me my order was already on the way and I would have it in a matter of three days

      As part of the Society for Creative Anachronisms, which hosts several Renaissance-inspired events throughout the year, it’s often necessary to find clothing, costumes and accessories that fit a certain period or theme. This year, the group I belong to is hosting an event with a Chinese theme, based on the 13th century Song Dynasty. I was desperate to find traditional Chinese clothing that represented the time period well. I came across a design called the Hanfu, while researching the period, and learned it has been around for more than a thousand years, and is still used as ceremonial dress in China today. My next mission was to find a shop that would make such a garment for a plus-sized girl like myself. That’s when I discovered Chinese Collection on ebay. I did a search for hanfu

      dresses and their shop seemed to be a premeir place for the purchase of such a thing. Even researching on line in general, the other sites which sold similar garments couldn’t even begin to compare in price to those of Chinese Collections.

      The dress I picked out was $120 plus shipping costs, but I knew it would likely cost more for the extra fabric, which is pretty standard for plus-size orders. I requested the $30 express shipping, and my final bill was a surprising $150. They never charged me additonally for the plus-size request. The customer service was wonderful. Every time I sent a question or concern regarding my order, they were very quick to respond, even given the twelve hour time difference between here and China.

      However, the most pleasantly surprising part of my experience ...


      • with this company is that within a week of placing my order, I received an email informing me my order was already on the way and I would have it in a matter of three days. In less than two weeks, I had a custom made garment. I couldn’t believe it! And when I received the garment, I was even more pleasantly surprised. It was very well made. The fabric was lighter than I had imagined, though nothing in the description suggested it was a thick material, and the skirt was also longer than the measurements I provided. I’d have preferred an elastic waistband, but the extra material in the skirt made it easy for me to give myself an elastic waistband with a few minutes on the sewing machine. The attached collar was only
        attached in three spots by a couple simple stitches, so it was difficult to get the collar to lay correctly. I had to add a couple stitches to the collar, along with the changes to the skirt. Otherwise, for the speed of the service, the materials used, and the express shipping, I certainly can’t complain about the service I received. They also sell modern Chinese garments as well, wedding dresses, prom dresses and garments for men. If you ever plan on a theme wedding or party, this would be the place to purchase your clothing. I would be hard pressed to call them “costumes” since they are extremely well made, with nice fabrics, and are actually historically accurate, which is incredibly improtant to those of us who participate in the Society for Creative Anachronism. I rate this seller incredibly high.
