Korean Clothing

An underskirt, or petticoat, of 3-5 layers attached to one waistband that was worn under ceremonial dress to prevent the skirt from sticking to the body and make it spread out wide.

Mujigi is the name of a petticoat of 3-5 layers that was worn under ceremonial dress not to create a triangular silhouette but to make the skirt nice and full. It is similar to the garment called seongun (skirts of different lengths attached to the same waistband to make the outer skirt spread out wide), which was worn by women of the Goryeo Dynasty. Each layer was pleated and full and the function of the mujigichima was similar to that of a modern day petticoat.
