The nice thing about it is, you don't have to tie it. You just put it on. I like the broader shoulder straps and the fact that it's not hanging around the back of your neck. Plus it kind of drapes nicely. It's almost a dress really.

How to print on A4 or other larger sized sheets of paper
Download each image in it's 'ORIGINAL' size. You can do this by clicking once on the image, then again to get to the image downloads page. From there select 'ORIGINAL size'. Right click and download the image. Print using the software of your choice without resizing the image. The original images are sized to 8.5 x 11, so if you are printing on A4, there will be a small segment of the paper that will remain blank.
Step 3: Assemble the Pattern
lay out the pieces and tape them together. cut out the pattern shape.
Step 4: Cut the Fabric
Lay the pattern shape along a folded length of fabric as shown.
Trace around the edges with chalk
Cut the pattern out of the cloth.
Step 5: Sew Opposite Shoulders Together
Right sides together, sew the shoulder seams together as illustrated.
Step 6: One Giant Hem
Get ready to sew the largest hem you've ever made on a garment.
Start somewhere, fold over a half inch of cloth or so and sew that to be the hem.
You can just keep sewing all the way around the whole thing until you come back to where you started without stopping!
To make the hem lay flatter, you can top stitch it again a little farther out.
