ETWGP: 8th Century, Tang Dynasty China – Proof of Concept (Doll)

Today I finished my proof of (basic) concept of the 8th Century Tang Dynasty China ruqun in muslin for the Epic Timey-Wimey Garb Project Doll.

The ru is one piece, based on what I could determine from both general hanfu patterns and period paintings.  The skirt construction was based on a YouTube video of how to wear this style of hanfu and backed up by my research on the evolution of the skirt. I’ll have more on that once I do the write-up for this period.

Here’s the back:

And my Pinterest board for this project, which has a lot of period paintings and modern reproductions: ETWGP: 8th Century Tang Dynasty China
