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

Items Needed:

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.)

That’s it!
