Buy the 139 Vietnamese Áo Dài sewing pattern from Folkwear. This ensemble of a flowing tunic over wide-legged pants is firmly associated with the country of Vietnam. The tunic features front and back waist shaping darts, a band collar, a front neckline/armhole opening, tapered long sleeves, and long free-hanging front and back panels. There is an option for an authentic raglan sleeve without darts, and an option with a fitted shoulder cap seam and elbow darts. The pants have an easy full-legged fit, left side zipper, and faced waistline for a clean, smooth fit.
