I’ve been reading up on historical Chinese clothing lately and wanting to make more hanfu. The ruqun dresses from the Tang Dynasty are particularly well suited to pregnant ladies so I decided to make one for costume college.
I made this in 3 days as it’s a very simple design. The most aggravating part was doing the hair pieces. I always leave the hair until the last minute because I hate doing it, and then I end up kicking myself for not setting aside enough time. =D So the hair was pretty haphazard and last minute, but it didn’t look too bad thankfully.
I love the way this outfit turned out and it was super comfy. I think there may be more ruqun in my future…
