Wrap dress in 4 easy steps

Hey all! I think it's time to own up to my unannounced week-long absence from the blogosphere. I've been fighting a tough gaming addiciton. That's right, my inner nerd came out to play for an entire week. I pretty realized I had a problem when I played the same game for seven hours straight on a perfectly sunny day... It's a bit of an embarrassing issue you see.

Anyways, I remember getting being asked how I managed to turn that green sari into a dress a few posts ago. Here's a quick tutorial. The procedure is almost exactly the same as the one I posted with the burnt-orange dress.

Step 1: Start by wrapping the fabric around the body from the back.



Step 2: Criss-cross the corners of the fabric around the front.



Step 3: Tie the ends around the back of your neck halter-style.



Step 4: Add a belt for structure to avoid the beachy sarong look.



And that's it! Easy! This is my new favourite default outfit for hot summer days when nothing else seems to be cool enough.

I love that! It looks so elegant and it is so flattering. Are there any other ways to do it (though this way looks like the best way)?
