Full Answer

To assemble a toga, the fabric is held horizontally behind the wearer's back, and one end is pinned to the shirt or tunic worn under the garment. The fabric is wrapped from left to right once or twice around the waist, depending upon the wearer's girth, and pinned again. The free end is brought forward and draped over the left shoulder, with the extra material hanging down over the back. Pins are used to secure the fabric in place. A belt, cord, scarf or fancy pin is used to help fasten the toga at the waist.
