GREEN PERANAKAN KEBAYA WITH CHAIN STITCHING c 1930s-40s
Old "Kebaya" with "chain stitching" seams. More recently made vintage kebayas will have the conventional stitching for their seams. Chain stitching is extremely labour intensive. More recently made kebayas would simply be machine sewn together. CONDITION: Faint patches of white around the pointy bits of the front and a bit further up (please see pics). I was advised that this could be easily re-dyed. DIMENSION: (Approximate when laid flat) Shoulder to shoulder = 29 cm Armpit to armpit = 40 cm Neck seam to bottom back = 58 cm Neck seam to longest point at the front = 65 cm Shoulder seam to wrist (arm) = 57.5 cm Embroidery including "lacing" (hole embroidery) = approx 5 cm "Lacing" (hole embroidery) alone = 4 cm "Lacing" at the tip fronts = 6 cm (the batik is NOT for sale)
