This is a lovely picture! :D
Hmm..I'm guessing the poetry form Ho Xuan Huong is in Vietnamese?
I am half Vietnamese but I haven't quite learned the language both vocal and written. :(

The characters in the picture is Han Nom (the old Vietnamese written language), very different from the form we use today :D

Cái cổ có hơi giống kiểu cổ áo dài hiện đại chút, áo ngũ thân cổ không cao lắm, nhưng không sao, tranh vẫn nhìn rất "xưa cổ" :D:D:D

theo anh Hữu thì cổ kiểu nào đúng với Hồ Xuân Hương hơn? Llama-Emoji-12 (Left and Right) [V1]

Có vẻ như cổ áo ngũ thân của dân Đàng Trong thời kỳ Trịnh - Nguyễn phân Tranh giống với cổ áo dài hiện đại ngày nay, và khá khác biệt với cổ của áo ngũ thân của dân Bắc thời Nguyễn sau này :P


Xem kỹ sẽ thấy cổ dựng của ngũ thân miền Bắc thấp và nới rộng, còn cổ của 2 kiểu còn lại thì dựng cao và hẹp lại đúng kiểu cổ Mãn Châu. Điều này không lạ khi cổ áo dân Bắc vốn biến cách từ cổ kiểu giao lĩnh, còn cổ ở miền Nam (sau này là áo dài hiện đại) vốn học hỏi trực tiếp từ cổ nhà Thanh.

Thực ra chỉ kết luận như vậy dựa trên mấy tấm ảnh thì hơi khiên cưỡng. Theo mình chưa chắc có sự khác biệt đó vì cổ dựng của miền Bắc cũng là do sắc lệnh của triều Nguyễn chứ ko phải tiến hóa từ cổ chéo. Nhiều khi độ cao thấp của cổ áo có thể chỉ là cá biệt hoặc do thị giác bị đánh lừa.

And about the costume, I used a reference to draw based on >> encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/ima… May be it's not a correct reference lol

The text is read as " Xuân tái đáo môn tiền phúc đáo". Just the first part of a Cau Doi I found on the internet. Ho Xuan Huong didn't write it LOL
Thank you for commenting, Q-san ;)
