This may be my favorite bead edging for baju kurung.
Here edging is around front end neck and around sleeves. Note the front neck slit, the edging is extended well below the slit end. Close up pic show the resulting double edge effect.
In crocheting this pattern is called basic starting chain. Here three colors used blue, green and gold to highlight the chain; blue sequins are used as paddings. I think the result is just sparkling beautiful.
This kurung material is cotton rayon, probably more rayon than cotton.
