Step 1: Get Your Sheet

Get a single color sheet (or just whatever kind of cloth you have). It works best if its a large size, at least ten feet long by three feet wide, so that it can wrap around your body at least twice. If the sheet is too big, just fold it so that it has the correct dimensions for your body.

Step 2: Hold to Sheet to Your Waist

simple enough, just grab the end corner of the sheet and hold it against your right hip. Keep a hold on the rest of the sheet, about six inches away from the hand holding the corner. If you don't understand, just look at the picture

Step 3: Wrap the Sheet Around Your Waist.

Using your left over hand that should be holding the left over fabric, wrap the sheet flat ways around your waist one time. Once you have wrapped it completely, hold it with with one hand so the the other hand is available for the next step.

Step 4: Draping the Sheet Over Your Shoulder

with your left over hand, grab the rest of the sheet. Drape the sheet over the opposite shoulder from where your other hand is holding the sheets. Pull it from behind your back with the same hand as before, so that your have made a complete circle and the rest of the sheet is back where it started. It should make more sense when your actually putting the toga on.

Step 5: Tuck in Excess

Take the fabric left from after the shoulder wrap and tuck it in to the waist wrap part, or if you have enough fabric, do another wrap around the waist and then tuck it in.

Step 6: Accesorize!

completely optional. I chose to put on a belt so that the whole toga would stay together much longer.
you can also where a wreath on your head or whatever else you can think of.

Step 7: Impress the Elderly Ladies

Your done! go out and show off your beastly toga, or whatever else you want to do with it.
maybe force one of your friends to be a horse and pull you around in a rickshaw.

    I vote for a video- that or farther away pictures. It's kind of hard to understand. Put a video up and I'll give you a higher rating.

    The steps individually are fine, but putting the whole thing together is just somewhat unclear. It's kind of like trying to build a skyscraper with nothing but close up pictures of the welds. That's an extreme example, but I'm just trying to get my point across. I do think adding a vido of the whole process would clarify it.
