I buy several half sarongs during the year for a young friend who teached belly dancing exercise classes. The last ones I bought her had descriptions of shells along the bottom. They were just gorgeous. I got her two of them since I could not decide which color to get. Glad I did not get more than just the black in this one. I will be returning this one. The description said embroidered, sequined and beaded. A little machine embroidery yes but NO SEQUINS AND NO BEADS. This is as plain as can be. I could make her one for almost nothing and it would be nicer. Skip this one girls. And I read the reviews. How did I get the one that was not finished?
