The Nyonya Kebaya 7

image compliments of Usha & Wei Ching

The main picture shows details of an embroidery design typically used on Nyonya Kebaya's.
The kebaya would be worn with a co-ordinating wrap over sarong. The insert shows the pattern used on the matching sarong.

today we wear these kebaya's over bustier and mermaid skirts, as a light evening jacket over a slip dress, or even over a strappy top and jeans; and baby, that looks good!
