Expressive Characteristics of Patchwork Shown in Modern Fashion
Kim, Sun-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 3, 2009, Pages 1~9
This study was conducted to examine how patchwork was expressed in fashion based on theoretical background on its brief history and expression styles and to show its possibility of creating ways for new expression in modern fashion. This study reviewed literatures on definition, history and styles of patchwork and investigated mainly works, which had been presented in collections home and abroad since 2000, to analyze its expressive characteristics shown in modern fashion. According to analysis on the expression of patchwork, it used various painting techniques such as patterns, colors and surface effect. It included patchwork having patterns provoking elusion of fairy tails; containing painting expression of reproducing works of artists; using colors boldly and contrasting strong primary colors directly to establish purity of painting and to pursuit characteristic expression; and using expression techniques of pure art such as gradation and cutting. Second, it used a compromise expression in materials, methods and substances. Patchwork which had used cloth without a pattern or printed fabric, utilized various materials like vinyl, paper, leather, metal and plastic and had a figurative value showing a solid expression as an objet itself with new techniques and changes of connecting methods. Thirdly, it used tradition patchwork techniques. Pieced patchwork, crazy patchwork and images of traditional odd ends of cloth covering a meal were applied to a whole area or a part of cloth to avoid monotony of design and to use it as a decoration.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 3, 2009, Pages 11~22
The purpose of this study was to identify the benefits in children’'s wear sought by mothers and to identify the influence of parental attitudes and clothing involvements. A survey was conducted and 350 responses collected from mothers who have elementary school-aged children were analyzed using SPSS 15.0 evaluation version. As a result, firstly, eight dimensions of benefits in children’'s wear were identified; individuality/expression, conformity, aesthetics/fashion, social status, functional value, standard, blame avoidance and economic value. Secondly, the influences of mothers’' parental attitudes on the clothing benefits and the moderating effects of clothing involvements were found. The effects of parental attitudes on the benefits were dependent on mothers’' clothing involvements.
Research on the Application and Effectiveness of a Teaching and Learning Curriculum Fostering the Development of Self-Identity: With a Focus on the 'Self-Identity Development' Units in Technology and Home Economics Textbooks
Lee, Hyun-Jung ; Cho, Byung-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 3, 2009, Pages 23~34
The purpose of this research is to analyze the development of a teaching and learning curriculum contributing to the development of self-identity, one of the most important developmental tasks during adolescence, and its effectiveness. This research analyzed the contents concerning self-identity and its subordinate concepts in 12 different technology and home economics textbooks for 7th graders. Based on the analysis, a teaching and learning curriculum contributing to the development of adolescents’' self-identity was developed and applied to classes through discretional creative activities. The effectiveness of the curriculum was analyzed by conducting a survey on the students before and after its application. Assessments were also conducted on the lessons applied. As a result, the lessons designed to help the development of self-identity increased the scores of self-identity, as well as all subordinate concepts, including subjectivity, self-acceptance, future planning, intimacy, stability and uniqueness. An ANCOVA analysis was conducted in order to determine whether the enhanced results of the survey after the classes were due to the application of the curriculum. It was found that the classes proved helpful to the students as the application of the curriculum remained effective even after the other influencing factors affecting selfidentity were controlled.

This meant that significant relationships existed among these variables and there was a causal relationship between clothing image and clothing shopping orientation.
The Study of Expression Methods in Modern Fashion Design from the Perspective of the Theory of Formative Form
Kwon, Gi-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 3, 2009, Pages 45~54
The purpose of this study is to understand the meanings of formative methods (re-creative expressions, abstractive expressions, conceptual expressions, and adaptive expressions) as they are adapted to fashion design. Re-creative expression is the representation of real objects from nature or the environment, sometimes in a humorous or surrealistic way. Abstractive expression is the use of reconstructed forms extracted from the basic characteristics of natural things, which take on variety of appearances based on the designer’'s creativity and imagination. Conceptual expression refers to the representation of ideas, concepts, and other products of the human mind. And, adaptive expression is a method of design that is focused on function driving the form of clothing. Modern fashion design is a fluid hybrid of these various types of expression that serves as an extension of the designers’' aesthetic values.

By definition, smart clothing describes a garment whose functionality is enhanced by technological advancements in order to ease one’'s lifestyle. To know user’'s understanding and needs, the research had consisted of brainstorming sessions, personal interviews, focus group meeting, and a series of content analyses. Ten of the interview subjects and focus group panel were found by contacting women aged 56-64 in the Ithaca community, NY. They were prompted with general questions on style choices for their lifestyles and age group and then presented with two examples of smart clothing to discuss and critique. Meanwhile, the other three interview subjects, located outside of the Ithaca community, were aged either above or below the targeted bracket. These subjects were interviewed as a method of comparison on multiple levels. Findings had shown that there was indeed a need for smart clothing amongst the increasingly populated demographic of older women: devices to help one’'s body temperature regulation and vision problem, and well-designed clothing. However, the functionalities must be carefully constructed and conveyed in order to be taken seriously by the mainstream consumer market. Once successfully designed, the smart clothing will ideally create a greater sense of autonomy for older women.

Lee, Sook-Jae ; Lee, Bong-Sun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 3, 2009, Pages 67~77
This study developed a model economic education program for young children related to Korean seasonal customs. The model was developed via literature reviews and survey research concerning teachers’' recognition of ‘'early childhood economic education’', consultations with professionals in the field, and testing and modifying the program. The goals of the model program were: teaching children to understand basic economic concepts, helping children to develop an economic attitude that emphasizes interdependence, and acknowledging the importance of eco-friendly economic values. The model includes three educational areas and 21 content areas including understanding the concept of exchange, sharing and cooperation, and circulation with nature. This study also developed 37 early childhood economic education activities using the teaching and learning methods of experiencing nature, virtual experience, real life experience, and traditional games experience.

Park, Bock-Hee ; Cho, Hee-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 3, 2009, Pages 79~85
This study examined the effects of added amounts of Lotus root powder on the physical and sensory properties, and consumer acceptability of Jook. As the level of Lotus root powder increased, L-value decreased and a and b values increased. The Jook also had higher viscosity and lower spreadability values as the amount of Lotus root powder increased. Sensory characteristics, such as color intensity, viscosity, nutty taste, and off-flavor increased significantly with the addition of Lotus root powder. A consumer acceptability test indicated that the 25% Lotus root powder group had the highest overall acceptability, appearance, flavor, and texture. In conclusion, to enhance the quality of Jook, a 25% addition of Lotus root powder would be the most beneficial.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 3, 2009, Pages 87~102
This study was conducted to determine which variables of interest could be used to predict the development of infants. The variables of interest in this study were demographic variables regarding to the infants and mothers, maternal knowledge of infant development, maternal self-efficacy, maternal parenting stress, and infant development. The participants consisted of 252 infant-mother pairs and all infants included in this study were 15 months to 36 months of age. The development of Infants was assessed by classroom teachers. Data regarding the mothers’' demographic information, maternal knowledge of infant development, maternal self-efficacy, and maternal stress were gathered by maternal self-reported questionnaires. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, t tests, and regression analyses. The primary results demonstrated that family income, maternal infant knowledge, and maternal parenting stress were predictive of the infant development. In addition, different patterns in the results of the stepwise multiple regression were observed among the infant’'s of different age. Implications for research and practice were discussed along with the results of study.

Jun, Mi-Kyung ; Jang, Jae-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 3, 2009, Pages 103~118
This study was conducted to explore the factors that influence the development of happiness during childhood using longitudinal data obtained from the Korea Youth Panel Survey(KYPS). Specifically, the causal relationships between factors impacting the individual children, the home environment factor, and the happiness of children were examined over a 3-years-period. The subjects evaluated in this study included 2,844 children (1,524 boys and 1,320 girls) and 2,844 parents who were administered the KYPS. The data were analyzed using the SAS program. The results revealed that happiness that develops during childhood remains stable and constant, which indicates that prior happiness has a strong effect on future happiness. The individual factors affecting the children, which include schoolwork achievement and extra private education, were found to have a great influence on the development of happiness at all ages. The use of longitudinal data in this study is a new method in the field of Human Development.
