About: I like to rock harder than granite! Actually, I just like rocks.

I threw Toga Tequila Tuesday at my house this week and needed to make a good toga for myself. After countless hours of websurfing, I could find no site that had instructions for how to wrap a toga for women. Well, here is my sweet toga that is not revealing and easy.

Materials:
6 yards of fabric
1 belt (or elastic band)

Step 1: Start Wraping!

I used six yards of fabric. I am a size 6-8 US.

Unfold the fabric and starting at one end, wrap it around your body like a towel. Be sure to fold about 2 inches over underneath your arms (you will need this extra fabric in the last step).

Wrap fabric around your body again so that you have two layers.

Step 2: Create a Belt

Gather fabric into a rope and wrap around your waist.

Wrap around your waist again

Step 3: Around the Neck

Bring the fabric across the front of your body and wrap the rope around your neck.

Step 4: Necklass

Wrap the fabric rope underneath the section of the rope that goes across your chest and pull up and then around the section of rope that goes across your chest. Center tie in the middle of your bust.

Step 5: And Around

Wrap the rope around the back of the toga. Tie the end at your back by wrapping it around the rope that goes around your waist.

Step 6: Belt It Up!

To keep the toga top from drooping down and exposing your bust while taking margarita gelatin shots with friends, you need to cinch it up.

Wrap a belt under the fold of extra material at the very top of the toga. I used an elastic belt I got at a used clothing store, but my roommate used a belt made out of webbing. A band of elastic tied at the correct diameter would work too.

Fold the extra fabric over the belt to hide it.

Step 7: Glam It Up!

Put on make up and accessories and you are totally ready to party! Whoot!

    Sorry, but also, nobody wore just a toga. they always wore a tunica under it. wearing just a toga in ancient Rome, would be the equivalent of wearing just a trenchcoat today.

    again, just wanted people to know. sorry if I caused any trouble.

    I really hate to be a toga party pooper, but when women in ancient Rome wore togas it meant they were.... prostitutes.

    I mean, go on and have your toga parties, it doesn't really matter today, I just wanted the women doing this to know about it.

    This is perfect for my wedding party. Both men and women are dressing in togas for my costume wedding in October.

    Going to a toga party and am soo excited to try out this wrap style! :D

    The reason you're not finding ways to wrap togas for women is because the only females who wore togas in Rome were prostitutes.  Before you ladies put on a "toga", remember that everyone who knows anything about Roman clothing is probably snickering at your "Roman prostitute" costume.

     Not revealing in the sense of exposed skin, but can be very revealing of the figure of the woman wearing it. Not as a man I'm saying that's a bad thing, if you are the model in the instructable, you and togas are made for each other. A well done instructable
