Anyone know where to get these for free or little cost? My friend is making one for her daughter but the only patterns we can find are very pricey. We found 2 but they were over 20 bucks. Thanks in advance!

From what I could find Ao Dai or Aodai is Vietnamese for long dress.
Here is a link that explains them quite well and I think might even tell you how to make them.
BTW I found this link just by doing a simple Google Search for ao dai patterns.
