The outer fabric used a luxurious silk with the patterns of cloud, dragon, and the letter Su, and the Su part was embroidered even more impressively with a golden string. The inner fabric was separately made with a lotus vine-patterned silk, which was a lined cloth overlapping each other and having the edges stitched. A decolored lotus vine-patterned silk was attached to the end of the sleeve, but there is no Saekdong, differentiating from other Wonsam. The front is 13cm shorter than the back. The left and right collars meet in the center, and have 3 pairs of coat strings. The outer fabric of the Daedae, the belt, is the same as that of the Wonsam. It is part of a shroud, and had a green color at the time of excavation.
