Hello soompiers!

This is my first time posting on craftsters, so please bear with the noob that I am!

Recently, I have fallen in love my nationality's traditional dress, called hanbok. This is the name of the Korean traditional costume. I have also been caught up in the hype of prom preparation.. trying to search for the perfect prom dress. So if you put that together.. you get a hanbok-style prom dress!

However, there aren't many of those kinds of dresses out there, are there? No. I don't think so! So i've decided to make one myself.

I am clueless as to what type of fabric to use, and where to buy the fabric. I would also like some help in getting a basic pattern for the dress in the picture below (premade or your own homemade pattern is fine Grin) Another inquiry.. I am wondering how you can give the bottom half of the dress a bit of volume.

My inspiration is the designer Lee Young Hee, who has a fantastic website filled with a gallery of her works, both traditional and modern hanboks. www.leeyounghee.co. kr

Thank you in advance !  Kiss

Awesome! i can't help you but I hope you find something!

That fabric looks like shantung (also called raw silk).

Volume for the bottom of the dress can be accomplished with a full slip (they sell them at wedding dress stores). You could also make one, and I don't think it would be THAT hard.

A basic hanbok pattern is available from folkwear:

2/18/12 - I no longer have the directions for wrapped pens, I lost them several years ago. To obtain them for yourself, do like I did, contact DMC threads directly and ask for them.

Wedding dresses are sometimes underlined with netting to give poofiness.  Then you could either line it or use the slip idea.  Beautiful fabrics and wonderful design.

I looked at the Hanbok gallery on Lee Young Hee's website and some of them are huge!  They basically look like really big skirts attached to a bandeau.  So I found this Vogue pattern that is similar, but intended to be made w/ softer material.

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!

i had a look at the designer's website and I am in love! they're absolutely stunning. Agree - some sort of silk would be best for the material i think Smiley silk dupion, raw silk ...
