Waiting for Mama:엄마 마중 is a very short story, the text of which was first published in a Korean newspaper in 1938. Later illustrated and made into a children’s book, Waiting for Mama contains some of the most beautiful illustrations I have seen. I discovered the book this week at the library, and I’ll be purchasing it very, very soon.
Rather than recreate the characters’ garments for a literal Get the Look, I decided to instead draw inspiration from the artwork and bring you a selection of clothing which matches the colors and hues found throughout the book. I hope you enjoy it — and I hope you’re able to read the book soon so you can discover the heart-tugging story yourself!
