    Making a Men's Toga

    Grab the sheet of cloth which you want to use for making the toga and hold it up at your waist, keeping the sheet’s long side parallel to the ground. Divide the sheet into three equal portions, keeping one of the three portions towards your left and the other two portions towards your right.

    Do the same for the other side of the sheet, leaving a hole for your arms. Pin together the open sheet sides. Cinch the sheet of cloth as neatly as possible at your waist and then use a piece of rope of a fancy ribbon to secure the sheet of cloth in place and prevent it from falling off of your body. It would be best if colour of the ribbon you choose complements the colour of the sheet you are using for making the toga.
