Greek Toga Instructions
The toga was a symbol of nobility in ancient Rome (amants image by atmospheric from Fotolia.com)

The Greek toga originated in ancient Rome and was typically a long cloth wrapped around the body over a tunic. Only male Roman citizens were allowed to wear togas. They were especially popular among kings and aristocrats as togas were not practical for hard work, making them a symbol of the upper class and nobility. They were also a sign of peace, as soldiers could not wear the toga. Today, the Greek toga is a popular costume and is relatively simple to create with an everyday bed sheet.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Take a flat white sheet from a twin or double bed and fold it in half lengthwise.

  2. 2

    Hold the folded edge of the sheet at your waistline, keeping one corner loosely at one hip.

  3. 3

    Wrap the sheet around your middle, returning to the hip. Approximately ½ of the sheet should still be free.

  4. 4

    Angle the remainder of the sheet up toward your shoulder opposite the starting hip. Wrap the fabric over the shoulder and back around to the hip.

  5. 5

    Tie the two ends together at the hip. A double knot may be necessary to keep the sheet in place. Alternatively, safety pin the ends of the sheet together under the fabric at the hip.
