You can choose neckline finishing by making a very lovely embroidery called "mata lalat" (housefly eyes); "karipap" (shell shape embroidery); herringbone stitching (tulang belut) or a doreamon (the japanese cartoon character). This is how the "mata lalat" looks like. It takes only about 1hr for me to get it done and I do it in the morning before I start work a the office.
Here you can see the neckline is round with a vertical 4.5" slit at the front. Neckline is finished by compressing a lis/piping all around. Than it is worn with a special single Baju Kurung button which is held in place by loop.
Here is again Zaba wearing the Baju Kurung that I had sew. I managed to snap her foto the other day even with the colour of the scarf not matching. She was sporting enough and that’s why I began to admire her. I hope this particular baju kurung is comfortable and nice for her to wear to office. She has chosen red flowery colour and she admit that she the colour was too red and bright but agree for a change why not!
Zaba, thanks again for letting me to snap foto of yours and also giving me a treat lunch at Mcdonald the other day. I OWE ONE the next time you come to my place!. Seriously.
