The Malay Baju Kurung gallery below will hopefully help those who don't yet know the Malay female traditional costume observe for themselves the various styles and patterns worn by the ladies of Pahang and Malaysia.
Hopefully too this gallery will give some new ideas to those who wish to sew and make this Malay traditional dress themselves and to tailor it according to their own taste.
The Malay traditional dress for women -- the baju kurung -- is exquisite in that while the form (long sleeves and long shirt with sarong) may be the same, the design, fabrics pattern, worn together with suitable embroideries and accessories, can be suited to make it beautiful and charming to the wearer.
It is generally loose fitting, so it's comforting to wear, especially in the humid and hot climate.
As the baju kurung can be worn in many ways, it is up to the wearer or person to make it attractive and stylish.
She can wear accessories, modern or traditional, to give added glow and warmth to the traditional costume.
It can be her head-dress, necklaces or the laced shawl or selendang that she puts on her shoulders or that covers her head.
So, whenever you attend a Malay traditional wedding, just observe the baju kurung worn by the bride, or the people who come to the wedding.
Below are some samples of the various designs and colors of the Baju Kurung Pahang, the Malay female traditional dress or costume, worn in Pahang and Malaysia.
