The Hanbok is a traditional Korean dress that is typically worn for special occasions like festivals and celebrations. Inspired by the traditional Hanbok, this pattern is for a modern wrap dress that is both easy to make and comfortable to wear.
Size Range: XS - 3XL (Please refer to the size chart)
Please note : We have a detailed step-by-step sewalong video on our YouTube Channel so we did not attach any photos/illustrations in these instructions.
Comme nous proposons une vidéo de couture pas à pas sur notre chaîne YouTube, il n’y a pas de photos avec ces instructions.
Our pattern is designed to be made with light to medium weight woven fabrics such as linen, cotton, silk, and other seasonal woven fabrics. We recommend avoiding fabrics that are too stiff or heavy as they they may not feel comfortable and could be too heavy for this dress.
Confident beginner / Intermediate
Pre-wash and dry all your fabrics as this will prevent your garment from shrinking. We recommend you read the instructions thoroughly before sewing.

Thank you so much for leaving a great review! x
I'd adopted but my grandmother is Korean and in the past few years I've been learning more about my heritage - including hanbok and sewing techniques. My previous sewing experience has largely been quilting and COVID masks. I have a modern hanbok dress from LEESLE that I love wearing and get tons of comments on so sewing my own has been a long-time goal. Before beginning the dress I watched the sew along several times to familiarize myself with the pattern/steps and also kept it nearby (on pause) while I worked. It was very comforting and meaningful sewing alongside someone who could be a sister/auntie learning to craft a hanbok, especially as an adoptee since my matrilineal connections who would typically have taught me such tasks are severed. I also kept my LEESLE hanbok dress nearby for reference since it is a similar style. I adapted the ties to match that dress, which includes an additional, exterior upper tie which I've gotten used to. From start to finish including ironing and cutting out the pattern it took about 15 hours (again, I'm a beginner). Now that I've completed the pattern once a second would be much easier, especially since I have a cut template. :) Certainly there were a number of seam-pulling moments - too. Thank goodness for seam pullers! Thank you for creating such a simple, easy-to-follow design (with sew along!!!) that provides a way for me to connect with my culture and increase my sewing skillset.
Thank you so much for sharing your personal journey and experience with sewing the hanbok. It's truly heartwarming to hear how this project has helped you connect with your Korean heritage. Congratulations on completing the dress, and I'm thrilled to know it holds such special meaning for you. x
I found a very comprehensive .pdf and amazing explanations on YouTube.
I’m still looking for the perfect fabric to start sewing… hope very soon 🤞 I will share my final dress as soon as ready 👍
Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm glad you found the resources helpful. Best of luck in finding the perfect fabric, and we can't wait to see your final dress when it's ready!
