The baju kebaya is also one of the favourites among the traditional Malay costumes especially during the 1960s.
Baju kebaya is usually made according to the wearerís size. A person with a lean body is fit to wear the baju kebaya for public gatherings.
The baju kebaya is worn with the kain songket or batik. The kebaya (the upper part of this dress) which is usually tight-fitting and short, is nowadays worn as a loose-fitting costume and does not usually be the wearerís size.
The baju kebayaís design is not so complicated. It only has one colour and doesnít have as many decorations as baju kurung, thatís why itís perfect to be worn at all times.
