    Well yeah I want to show off my legs...... but I keep tying it so it falls off completly... At least it falls off before I make it out the door... But if anyone knows how to tie it so it stays up I would love to know how!
     
  4. can you post a pic of it please because to sure what you mean because I am think of the one i have and there is no way it will fall off unless i dont tie it tight

    It's hard to master a knot... I have to keep readjusting my skirt if I move around a lot in it...
     
  6. Ok I'll try to explain this best I can...it would be obviously easier to show you in person but here goes...

    wrap it around you to get a feel for where the ends will be. Take the top part of the skirt and pull a little bit of it through your fist, do the same thing with the other side and tie the two ends together...you might have to do it a couple times to get the feel for it. Good luck.

    do you mean a sarong? A sarong is just a simple square piece of fabric. A wrap skirt has strings and is pieces of fabric sewn together, fitted at the waist and a-line.

    If you want to know how to tie a sarong ,just google it and a bunch of sites can tell you many different ways to tie them.

    A wrap skirt has a hole in one of the seams at the waist to put the string from the other side into.

    I used to wear them all the time... if I didn't tie it, I would just safety pin it on...one on the outside and one in the back on the inside so I doesn't fall down in the back. It was a little less revealing and more acceptable in public, and I didn't have to worry about it falling. :)
     
  10. not sure what you found on google, but the best way ive found to tie my sarongs is to line the middle of it up with the middle of youre back/butt. cross the sides around the front and tie it together in the back again. its snug and it looks good this way.

    if you dont mind showing leg you can just tie it on the side and probably pin it together below the knot.. i coulnt show that much leg. haha
