The wrap dress is one of the most popular and versatile styles of dress available for women. Introduced in 1972 by designer Diane Von Furstenberg, the wrap dress is a staple in any fashionable woman's wardrobe. Its popularity is due in part to its ability to flatter any figure by enhancing the bust, accentuating the waist and slimming the hips. The wrap dress is great for traveling and as a maternity outfit. It is extremely comfortable and requires minimal care and ironing.

    Take one end of the string and make it into a loop. Then make the opposite end of the string into an identical loop, similar to the "bunny ears" loops made when tying shoelaces. Now cross the two loops you made and pull the one on top through the hole between them. Pull the loops tightly in opposite directions.
