Chinese and Japanese confusion

I've been around twitter and I realized there has been a lot of confusion between Japanese clothing and Chinese clothing. So in my attempt to clear the issue (and the hope of proper term usage) here's a helpful guide.

KIMONO is a Japanese clothing. The full length robes worn that the hem falls to the ankles and is wrapped around the body always left side over right side and is secured by a sash called, obi, which is tied at the back.

CHEONGSAM/QI PAO is a Chinese clothing. It's a body hugging one piece dress often with mandarin collar.

Girl's beautiful red traditional Chinese dress (QiPao or qi pao). Red is symbolic of good luck, vitality, and the New Year in the Chinese Culture! Gold brocaded Red Cloth of bamboo and plum leaves are symbolic of longevity.

But as the years go by, Qi pao evolved to a become a pants set often worn by children of both genders.
