I'm so excited about this line! I'm calling it Girls Around the World. I started these outfits about two years ago and just never got around to finishing them. I have about five completed and would love requests for the rest so if you have a favorite country/culture you'd like to see, leave a comment or send me an email and I'll consider it. January's outfit comes all the way from Korea!
I did a bit of google research for this so who knows how accurate it is. What I found is that this smock is called a "Hwarot". It is traditional Korean clothing worn during the Goryeo and Joseon Dynasty by royal women for ceremonial occasions or by commoners for weddings. I'm sure there are many Korean readers out there who may know more or may think I got it all wrong. :) If you are Korean or know more about the culture, please share!
If you haven't signed up yet for the Outfit of the Month Club, I'm extending the sale for the next week so do it soon!
