Why spend the big bucks for a designer frock? Just follow these simple steps to a lovely summer dress or beach cover-up.
You will need
- A full-sized sarong
- A friend
- And 2 safety pins
- A bathing suit with shoulder straps
Step 1 Hold sarong Hold two ends of the sarong behind you so that it’s stretched evenly against your back, hanging from your armpits down.
Step 2 Cross corner Bring one corner forward and cross it in front of you to your opposite shoulder.
Step 3 Pin corner Pull that corner over your shoulder and have a friend pin it to the back of your sarong.
If you’re wearing a bathing suit with shoulder straps, knot the corner to a strap instead of pinning it to the sarong, and slide the knot over your shoulder toward your back.
Step 4 Wrap around body Wrap the rest of the sarong around your body under your bustline.
Step 5 Tuck free end Tuck the free end into a section that is tight against your body.
Step 6 Pin in place Pin it in place and strike a pose—you’re done!
