- 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.
- TIP: 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!
- FACT: Comedy duo Abbott and Costello both donned the signature South Seas garb for their 1942 caper, Pardon My Sarong.
