    Sorry, lol, just saw all my mis-spellings and missing words, haha. Yes, it's been on the list for my OOT bags- I really wanted to have them for all the women. I originally planned to make them as they're relatively easy & cheap to make, but had knee surgery so can't move around much now :(

      Wow - that is a nice gift but very spendy for all female guests potentially.  Do you have anyone who can help you make them QueenDiva?

          UPDATE! i received my sarongs and they are very nice. i wouldn't say the quality is top notch, but decent enough for the price. i am comparing them to a sarong i bought in the Dominican Republic over 10 years ago which was pretty high quality.  these ones are kinda thin, but seriously they are for the beach and they are certainly good enough for that!   in terms of how they look, they are VERY pretty! the colors and designs are great!  not cheap looking at all.  like i said, my only issue is that the material itself is a bit on the thin side.

           

          oh, one other thing, i bought the standard size for everyone, but i got one "mini" sarong.  when you wrap it around, it is the length of a mini skirt and it comes with ties.  BUT, i ordered the pink one with palm trees (see my link below), and when i put it on and tie it, the palm trees are upside down!  you would think it would be made so when you are wearing it, the design is right side up.  for the standard size sarongs which can be worn either way, it wouldnt be an issue, but for the mini with the ties, it can only be worn in one direction.  so this is the only one i regret spending money on.  now that i have it, i will keep it and use it of course, but if i had known, i would have skipped it.

                That is just strange that it would be upside down.  Thanks for letting us know how they look.
