Pre Order Cheongsams (Standard Size)

What is a Pre Order?

From time to time we acquire fabric in limited quantities and we put a call out for pre orders. We make our cheongsams according to the size and design our customers want, maximizing the usage of the fabric.

Prices start from $370 depending on fabric & design. Dotted Line reserves the right to modify prices and/ or terms & conditions from time to time.

How does a Pre Order work?

  • Choose from the size chart below - please check all measurements carefully before placing your order. Final fit may vary with different fabric used, even for the same measurements.
  • Our cheongsams are classic slim fit, lined & with a concealed back zipper unless otherwise stated. Decide on the rest of your cheongsam options below.
  • We apologize that we aren't able to do reservations as the fabric quantity is limited.  Payment in full via PayNow or bank transfer is required to secure a piece.
  • Approximately 10 weeks to delivery from the time the order is confirmed.  This may be longer during peak periods.
  • We are unable to assist with alterations. May we suggest taking your piece to a trusted seamstress.  Our cheongsams come with sufficient seam allowances for some alteration; do note it is always easier to alter something down rather than up (larger).
  • ​We are unable to accept returns or refunds.
  • Discounts do not apply to preorders.
  • Free shipping is included.
