This week in my Korean patchwork class, we just worked on our current projects, and didn’t start anything new. Our teacher brought a bunch of traditional clothes for us to try on and see the different types of silk and other materials. Most of these items were made by her.
This is a baby outfit that is worn for a baby’s first birthday celebration, which is usually very large. It is a bit short on G2 since she just turned 2. She liked wearing it, but was not too interested in getting her picture taken.
These are some of the hanbok we got to try on. It is a sleeveless dress with a short jacket over top. I am on the right, the woman in the middle is Korean, and on the left is from Costa Rica. We all live in the same apartment complex.
We see a lot of people wearing traditional clothing since it is Lunar New Year. This is the biggest holiday of the year.
