Sulam Bunga

Sulam Bunga is hard work on soft material like this silk. You have to hold the material lightly and stich to avoid puckering, Found this flower beads and sequence embroidery from a public photo in Photopages. Would like to extend the stiches to the sleeves; unfortunately one of the sleeve do not have the flower. This kebaya is Batik on Korean Silk and thread embroidered at sleeve edges, neck, front openings and around lower hem. As it is already edge embroidered with shiny silver thread, it doesn't need any bead embroidery there. Can't wait to see the owner to wear this.
