May I borrow your sarong?

What is a sarong? The ones my sister and I own are silk painted fabrics that are about 44 inches by 66 inches.  They can be tied to create a shirt, jacket, skirt, dress, bathing suit cover up, or just a plain scarf.

Sarong as a jacket
(I tied the two corners on both ends to create arms for a jacket.) The sarongs come with a travel bag that the scarfs will fit into for easy travel.

I asked my sister if I could borrow hers for my upcoming trip to Jamaica. The silks have a hand stitched hem around all four sides.  She uses her more than I do and some of the hem was coming out. Payment for usage was re-stitching the hem.

Repairing the hem of the sarong
While I had needle and thread out, Duchess and Misty Blues toy smurf needed to go to the smurf-hospital twice for stitching.  The plastic beans fell out of his britches and his hat ripped. Our Dobie girls play hard!

  1. I think you should be taking the person who created those sarongs along to Jamaica - bet she'd bring along a few extra for you to wear...

    1. Ann, my sister said that I should not borrow her sarong unless she could wear it in Jamaica. LOL It is a work event. I work for the right company. :^)
