A toga party can be a fun way to dress up in costumes and have a good time with friends.

If you need a costume for an upcoming get together, then a toga may be the option for you.

    Over The Shoulder Knot

  1. 1

    Start by draping one end of your sheet over a shoulder. Drape it so that it goes a few inches below your shoulder blade, so that you can tie it off later.

  2. 2

    Wrap your sheet around the front of your body and bring it under your arm, opposite the shoulder you draped the end over. Wrap it around your body once or twice for a larger sheet.

  3. 3

    Bring the sheet you've wrapped around your body up at the back, you may need a friend to help with this. Tie the end of it to the end you've draped over your shoulder.

    Behind The Neck Knot

  1. 1

    Take your sheet and put one end behind your neck having a friend hold it there, as you continue wrapping

  2. 2

    Bring your sheet around from the back of your neck and pull it across your body, bringing it under your arm, and around and back to the front of your body.

  3. 3

    Pull up the end and bring it behind your neck and tie it with the other end of the sheet that is behind your neck.

    Securing Using Rope

  1. 1

    Cut a hole in the centre of your sheet, large enough for your head to fit through.

  2. 2

    Pull your head through the centre of your sheet and tie up the sheet on either side of your head with rope. This will cinch the sheet up and make it so that fabric isn't dangling over your arms.

  3. 3

    Take another piece of rope and tie it around your waist to give your toga some shape, then fit it to your body.

Tips and warnings

  • To further secure a toga, if you are worried about slippage, secure it in place using safety pins.
