How to Bubble Tie a Sarong

Give your sarong a polished look by hiding the knot.


  • Step 1: Hold sarong Hold the sarong behind your back horizontally, an end in each hand, just under your armpits.
  • Step 2: Grasp sarong Grasp the sarong several inches above the edge in each hand, forming two bunches of material.
  • Step 3: Tie bunches Tie these two bunches together in an unfinished knot, pulling tightly so the fabric is wrapped just above your bust line, close to your chest.
  • TIP: You can also tie the sarong around your waist as a skirt.
  • Step 4: Pull corner over knot Take one of the short, free-flowing corners and pull it beneath, up and over the unfinished knot. Smooth out the material that is now dangling over.
  • Step 5: Tuck free end Take the other free end and tuck it into the top of the sarong underneath your armpit.
  • Step 6: Let sarong flow Let the rest of the sarong flow.
  • FACT: The sarongs actress Dorothy Lamour wore in her famous road trip movies with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby were all auctioned off for charity.
