The fabric is satin silk that has been hand dyed in a light lavender and deep royal purple. The designs were made by etching wax onto the silk with traditional batik techniques.
The top is V neck and button down while the skirt is partly elasticated and can be secured at the back with a clasp. The slit at the front of the blouse lets the royal purple of the skirt peep through and the design details on the end of the sleeves bring attention to the fine movement of your hands!
This ensemble is called "Baju Kebaya" and is a Malay costume worn by women all over Malaysia and Indonesia. Batik on silk is considered formal attire there and this piece is perfect to be worn at the office then on a classy night out!
Buttons are worn on the inside of the top and brooches or pretty pins are normally worn on the outside, over the stitch marks.
This outfit is super comfortable worn both slightly loose as in the pictures or as a tighter fit that shows off your curves in a conservative manner!
