Sunshine and the beach! Are you looking for a quick and easy cover up to wear to the beach? A Sarong is the perfect choice to complement your beach wear- just simply wrap and tie.
For making a Sarong, our Rayon Batik fabrics are stylish and chic! Rayon Batik fabric is soft, lightweight, comfortable, flowing and drapes elegantly. We have included a YouTube video at the bottom of the blog, showing many ways to wear a sarong.
How to Make a Sarong
Rayon Batik Fabric
Sew Machine or fabric adhesive tape (such as Heat and Bond)
It’s simply a long rectangle of fabric, no pattern necessary!
The standard size sarong is 66″ in length by 45″ wide.
However, with every woman being a different size, we found the best way to get the right size for your body is:
your hip measurement + 36″.
Our Rayon Batik Fabric is 46″ wide and wouldn’t need to be adjusted for the length. (Unless you are petite or want a shorter sarong)
To finish, first cut off the selvage edge. Then fold each raw edge 1/4″ and press to wrong side of fabric. (6 mm) * If you have a serger, first serge then fold and press. Fold again to the wrong side and sewing along the inside hem edge. If you don’t sew, create a “hem” on the folded edges and use fabric adhesive tape. (We suggest Heat’n Bond Iron-On Adhesive Hem, which works great with rayon.)
Now that you know how to make a sarong you just need to know the many different ways to tie and wear a sarong. Watch the YouTube video and you are ready for the beach! Enjoy your summer!
