There are several different styles of toga for both men and women, many of which are a modern take on the classic Greek style. A halter toga is a great styling option for women since it adds flair to the plain fabric and accentuates the chest and shoulders. Fortunately, this fashion project does not require any expertise. Once you've acquired the supplies, you're only minutes away from a one-of-a-kind, halter toga.
Things You'll Need
- 6 yards of mid-weight cotton fabric
Measure from your bust line downward, until you reach the desired length of your toga. Then use a pair of scissors to trim the fabric to that length.
Tuck one end of the fabric under your left arm and hold it there. Then take the length of the remaining fabric and wrap it around your body twice. The fabric should hug your torso and cover the busts completely, like a tube top.
Twist the remaining fabric around itself to form a loose rope. Continuing in the same direction of your wrapping, wrap the rope around your waist twice to form a belt.
Bring the remaining length of the twisted rope up toward your neck after you've created the belt. Pull it around the back of your neck to form a halter.
Loop the last bit of length of fabric around the belt at the center point of your bust. Pull the loose end up through the loop that is created and form a loose knot at the center of your bust. If any length of fabric remains, hide it away by tucking it under the belt.
Tips & Warnings
- Buy cotton fabric that is not so heavy that it will make you sweat, but not so light that it will be transparent and flimsy. The fabric color and pattern is up to you.
