Have you ever wondered how to make a sarong dress with straps? This article will give you some tips. Whether you'd like to make a long sarong dress or a halter dress with straps, there's a way to make your sarong work for you. In addition to the halter dress, you can also wear your sarong as a head scarf or mini dress.

Creating a Halter Dress With Straps

To create a halter dress, start by cutting out the back and front panels. The front panel should be longer than the back panel, and the back should be shorter than the front. Measure from the center point of the top to about seven inches away on either side. Pin the fabric to avoid shifting while cutting. Use a measuring tape and ruler to make accurate measurements of each piece. Cut off the excess fabric.

Choose a fine fabric for the dress. Halter dresses tend to show off cleavage. Choose fabrics with a high sheen and a woven weave. If you need support, choose a bralette designed for a large bust. A halter bralette can show underneath a dress without creating an unsightly crease. This style is perfect for social events, such as a night on the town, a date, or a party.

Creating a Long Dress With Straps

The first step in preparing a long dress with straps is to create the casing. The casing is a 1.25-inch-high knit strip that is placed at the waistline of the dress. Pin it to the dress at this location. Then, sew it to the dress in the same manner as the front straps. Make sure to keep the seams even and straight. Also, pin the fabric at the end where it meets itself.

To create the straps, fold the fabric widthwise to make them shorter. Place a French curve ruler between two marks and draw a light line. Place a fabric pencil on a string and swing it along the curve. Once the fabric has the correct curve, turn it out and press the seam. Now you are ready to attach the straps to the dress. You're almost done! Now, you need to attach the fabric straps to the body of the dress.

Wearing a Sarong as a Head Scarf

Whether you have bad hair days or just want a fashionable head scarf, wearing a sarong is a simple and versatile solution. The large fabric can be wrapped around your head in many different ways, including in a knot. And if you want to wear your sarong as a head scarf in a country that requires head covering, you can find a neutral-colored sarong that can easily be manipulated to look like a headscarf.

In addition to its practical use as a head scarf, a sarong can be worn as a skirt or shawl in tropical climates. Many sarongs are beautifully printed or have a beautiful pattern, almost like a silk scarf. These versatile sarongs can also cover bare shoulders when visiting temples or more conservative places. A sarong can also double as a head scarf when you need to cover up your hair in a public restroom.

Using a Sarong as a Dress

The sarong is a versatile summer fabric that can be worn anywhere you might wear a halter top or bandeau top. While it's original roots are in tropical island style, you can create a sexy dress with a strapless bralette and a strapless top. Here's how to do it! Use these tips to make a sarong halter top or halter dress.

First, tie a double knot around the front of your sarong. This will create a cool strapless neckline. Next, tie another knot along the front to create a loose, flared skirt. Be sure to tie the sarong in the front and back, so the patterned side is facing out. You'll be able to tuck your arms in this knot to make sure it stays in place.

Tying a Sarong

A sarong dress is an excellent choice for the beach or the rooftop bar. Wrap the sarong around your body, with the long side parallel to your arm span. When you have reached the top corner, tie it over your shoulder. You may also tie it around your sternum. This way, you can show off the shape of your shoulders. For this style, you should wear a belted sarong.

To tie the sarong dress, hold it horizontally at the back. Then, pull the material across your body, from the left to the right, to the front. Pull the excess material down under your armpit, and then tie it at the top corner. You should be able to see the patterned side of the sarong as you tie it. If the sarong is oversized, you can tie it at the center back to reveal the side slit. If you've ever wondered what size a pareo is, you can learn about Plus size, Regular, Small and XL sizes.
