The fabric is called ‘lurik’, a traditional handloom from Central Java, Indonesia. It was sold already cut in 3 m package, but the width is only 90 cm. I was prepared to add seamline on the center back because of the narrow fabric. Fortunately, 90 cm was just about right for the back piece (I use the smallest size).
The pleats were adjusted a bit to my measurements. Instead of six pleats like the original pattern, I ended up with four deeper pleats. A pair of side pockets were also added.
