Modern Yet Traditional Korean Hanbok Trends + Free DIYs

Hanbok chima

Admired around the world for their bright and vivid colors and simple silhouette, the traditional Korean hanbok dress has simple lines without pockets.  The term 'hanbok' literally means "Korean clothing". Hanbok today often refers specifically to clothing of the "Joseon period" and is worn as semi-formal or formal wear during traditional festivals and celebrations. More hanbok history at Wikipedia

Watch to learn how bluegrl95, LadySasa1000, and Fluorescence911 all create their hanboks from A-Z. (Fluorescence911 hand paints her hanbok chima!)

Hanboks are made using tightly woven ramie fabric or other lightweight fabrics such as cotton or plain and patterned silks. They can also be made using voile, cotton lawn, and linen.


Make a simple hanbok Jeogori with a pattern. Check out bluegrl95's Instructables page for the pattern.

Hanboks are simple, traditional and beautiful garments that were once everyday clothing.
