custom-made or ready-made?

it is that time of the year again-RAYA! ok, almost.
what is raya without new clothes, right ladies (and gentlemen)? during my trip to Bukittinggi, Indonesia early this year, i bought 3 pieces of materials for raya. two pieces are for baju kurung and one piece for kebaya. but guess what? to date, i have yet to send them to the tailor. mum has been asking me to send it to the tailor way before the fasting month but i delayed and waited and procrastinated so now padan muka sendiri. i can bet that no tailor will accept my order. i guess the materials will have to wait for raya haji.
luckily, there are a lot of ready-made baju kurungs available almost everywhere. phew~ looks like i'm gonna have to settle with buying one (or two, or three) of the ready-made ones. kalau pandai cari, pandai pilih, memang cantik. but the thing that worries me is that everywhere they are selling the same kind. by the same kind i mean the same design, colour and pattern. so what are the odds that you will be wearing the same piece of baju kurung with the others? to make it worst, it is the exact same design, colour and pattern. now that would be really freaky and odd (and embarrassing?). the thing about buying ready-made baju kurung is that it is not exclusive.
how would you react or handle a situation if you go to someone's house and bump into another person wearing the same exact piece? would you try to avoid that person? or would you just sit in the car or run to the toilet and hide? or how about taking a picture together and ask people "who wears it better?"
i think the male lot have it very much easier than us ladies when it comes to bajus. i am sure they wouldn't mind bumping into another person who is wearing the same exact baju melayu with them, right?
