Whether you're preparing for a toga party or making a carnival costume of a Greek Goddess, making your own toga is easier than you think! Read this article to learn how to do this.
Method 1 of 2: Making a one shoulder strap gown
Step 1. Fold the sheet in half widthwise, so that it is the correct length
Hold it in front of your body to determine the size of the fold. The gown should cover you from your chest to your knees.
You can make the gown longer or shorter, depending on your personal preference.
Step 2. Wrap the sheet around you from behind, holding a point in each hand
Step 3. Wrap the left tip around your body once and then pull it over your left shoulder
Step 4. Now put the right point through the front on your left shoulder and tie both points together
Tie a double knot on top of your shoulder.
Drape the sides of the sheet around your body as you turn so that the gown is tight enough to stay in place.
Step 5. Hold the gown in place with some safety pins
Step 6. Complete your outfit with a narrow, braided belt and/or a gold headband
Pair with a pair of flat, brown or gold sandals. Go out and show yourself in your gorgeous look!
Method 2 of 2: Making a gown with a halter top
Step 1. Hold the sheet horizontally against the front of your body
Step 2. Wrap it around your body like a towel a few times
Release a piece of about 1 meter from the front of your body.
Step 3. Twist the loose tip a few times and place it on your left shoulder
Wrap it behind your neck and tuck it well under your right arm.
Step 4. Hold the gown in place with a few safety pins
Also remember to pin the loose end.
Step 5. Complete your creation with a gold ribbon or cord, or a braided belt around your waist
Wear a gold headband or leaf wreath in your hair. Party in your latest outfit!
- Wear a strapless bra or white tube top under your gown in case it comes off during the party.
- Use an inexpensive sheet that you can throw away later, especially if you're going to a big party where it could get dirty.
- If you're concerned that the gown will show through, wear white clothing underneath (such as shorts and a camisole). That way you will feel more at ease.
