Loli-inspired hanbok-style: "Han-loli"

I know I participated in a couple of threads on this...

...and to make the story short, I altered a hanbok to try to make it loli. :3

Now I know that just adding lace does not equal loli... but I still find it cute looking. :3


It all started with a hanbok chima (skirt/dress/jsk thing). This one was also one of the hanboks my mom wanted to throw away because it was too out of style and old.


I took the middle piece and added lace and pintucks then sewed them back together... though a bit shorter.


I added lace to the collar and wrist to the chogori (short jacket) and tied a deng-gi (virgin's hair ribbon) into a hair bow.


If you can excuse the poor lighting, this is kinda how it looks. :3


This is the han-JSK I made from the chima. I put a little lace on the shoulder straps. I was supposed to put more lace on the bottom of the "bodice" but I forgot. Xp

I have a couple more designs and will definitely make them - whether or not they are loli because I find them cute. :3

Well, what do you think?

The inspiring design. Though this used a blouse with hanbok-like sleeves with the chogori as a short sleeved bolero. I really want to make this someday.

You look marvelous! I love the pleats on the chima. Your hair ornament is adorable, and the print on the fabric over all is very girlish and pretty.

The shape of the skirt looks a little off, though. I know it would be tricky since traditional pettis flare at the waist and the chima poof starts much higher than that--maybe hanloli would require its own sort of petti, one that flares just under the breasts for that neat empire-waist look? I think it would definitely be worth some experimentation, there's a LOT of promise in this style.

I was actually thinking about this. I know that regular hanboks have their own type of petticoat (or more like under-dress). I just might have to do that! XD

Wow, I'm really impressed by this! It's a very nice fusion of the two styles, although as Mangochutney said you want to be careful about the waist. I was very much looking forward to someone executing one of these designs, and it looks fantastic! Can't wait to see some more.

Gah! I love this. I can't really give you any tips, because I don't know much about making hanbok into Loli, but it's great!

Wow I especially love the hair ribbon. It kinda makes me feel like you've "upgraded" traditional Korean culture without forgetting the root of it. Very adorable!

I also like the design on the right of your second post. I can't wait to see you make it! :3

Thanks everyone for your comments and crits!
I think I'll work on some petticoat and go fabric hunting for the design sometime next week... *yay vacation-time!*
