Description

Middle – The Baju (Outfit) Kurung (Envelope?) basically means an outfit that covers the whole body. It’s versatile, so it can be worn during formal or informal events. Very comfy, doesn’t constrict (in spite of what it’s called). The top is basically a tunic, and I made a simple rectangle wraparound for the skirt.

Material Notes

Chiffon
I’m not too sure what the fabric for the skirt is (:S)

Difficulty

Intermediate

      Oh that’s awesome! You should come by sometime around April/May cause the weather’s best then. November through February it’s rainy season, so it’s not too good.

      Thank you!

      Thanks! My sister was a little weirded out, saying the colours are much too strong to be put together. But, what the heck, I thought it went well together. chuckles
