Toga Party

Getting crafty this aft since I do not have a sewing machine so it was my travel iron and packing tape to hem my fabric. Now I am just trying to work out the best way to make it fit and keep it from falling off. According to How to make a toga site – six Yards is the official recommendation but they think it’s too long. Five Yards is a little closer to reality but still on the long side depending how much draping do you want. Four Yards is good enough for a simple man or child’s toga and they say most people find four yards will do the trick for almost any kind of toga. Sure wish I had bothered to look that up before I came home with the 2 yard recommendation I saw on facebook invite ha ha.

AC and Larry’s party was a blast. Full blown toga convention – everyone did a great job on their outfits. They had Troy projecting on the wall – Rick Leona and I were laughing cause the music that was playing was very fitting and so funny against the battle scenes.

Packing tape and paperclips was my sewing machine replacement – who knew togas were so complicated.
