i’ve always liked these dresses, my wife rarely wears hers anymore.
It’s a lovely dress. Korean, right? But it’s impractical for our way of life.
Brings to mind a story. I was in an Indian saari shop down in L.A. one day to look at the beautiful saaris which I think are the most feminine dress ever invented. The young Indian lady who was helping me and showing me how it was folded and tucked was wearing blue jeans and I asked her why when there were all these wonderous silk saaris around. She explained that in India she had servants to do just about everything while here she had to do everything herself. She didn’t mind that, but one day she was in the grocery store in her saari, and one of the long ends got caught on something, and the whole thing unraveled right there in the middle of the store, and she was standing there in her underwear. It was the most embarrassing moment of her life, and since then she only wore the saari for special occasions. I guess in India she never went grocery shopping and the saari never got in the way, while here it did. I can imagine the same for this lovely dress. It’s decorative and beautiful, but not practical. The sleeves alone would get in the way of any sort of cooking, let alone the skirt getting in the way for all sorts of activities.
But maybe if you take your wife out to a special Korean event where she has to do nothing but look pretty she might just wear it for that occasion.
What do you think?
Another beautiful drawing by the way.
thanks, Rose, these Korean dresses are impractical to wear for everyday events, but for ceremonies and cultural events they are great. My wife and daughters would wear these when they would sing or do various Korean dances for festivals.
Ah yes, I’ve seen those lovely dances. In L.A. there’s a huge Korean community. Is there a large enough Korean community to perform these dances where you live now?
I just love this drawing, and I love the colors of the dress. Maybe this drawing will induce her to wear it again for some event or other.
Very nice drawing and mood.
Beautifully executed colours on the skirt.
