This is an old kebaya made of thin cotton and modestly embroidered around its edges. The chain stitching seams indicated that this is relatively older, probably from c 1930s or 1940s. It is a labour intensive method which fell out of favour in more recent times where seams are simply machine sewn. CONDITION: some rust marks, not sure what from, as indicated in pictures (front of right hand, lower back, upper back, front left panel, and front left hand)
