Baju Kurung

Spent most of the weekend completing this beaded lace baju kurung with matching olive green taffeta skirt.

Instead of the traditional kurung skirt, the skirt is in the kebaya style.

The lace is really lovely: muted gold embroidered florals with olive green, mid and deep grape coloured beads, offset with translucent sequins, giving the kurung a subtle glitter.

Intricate lace edging at the hem and sleeves gives a finished look to the outfit. The skirt is kept plain to complement and keep the focus on the decadent kurung top.

The original plan was to have a beaded edge at the collar but there was no time to get the beading done. It will look just as lovely worn with a large brooch centered on the collar.

Perfect for a special occasion.
