"How to Tie a Sarong / Pareo!

There are so many uses for sarongs. They can be used as a short skirt or shawl on cool windy days. Many people use them as curtains, baby slings, scarves, shawls, wall hangings, table covers, bathing suit cover up and anything else you can dream of!

Sarongs are rectangular shaped, so you have the option of wearing your sarong in a variety of ways.

Here is an example of how to Tie Your Sarong in a "Long Skirt":

(1) Wrap the sarong around your body (waist, hips, chest)

(2) Grab two corners of the sarong and create a "tie" by pulling the ends vertically, then knot the tie and pull the ends horizontally (knot again to secure).

(3) Fluff out the tie to make sure that the right side of the fabric shows and that the knot looks good.

(4) The tie can be at the front, back, or side (ends may be tucked underneath).

Adjusting The Length

Adjusting the length is as simple as folding the sarong in half for desired length, then tie.
