I’ve become extremely fond of gathering up my buton-front shirts and blouses and knotting them at the waist. You’ve seen me do this approximately 70 trillion times since spring, I believe. And I had a couple of folks ask for some tips for how to make this work, so I whipped up a video!
Requisite list of things I forgot to mention in the video itself:
- I don’t do this with pants, so I can’t offer much advice there. But I believe that on some body shapes, knotting lower on the torso will work beautifully. (If you knot as high as I do, you’ll need some taaaalllllll pants.)
- This technique also works with dresses. See?
- Finally shirts and blouses with some stretch/spandex will generally knot better and hug the body a bit closer.
And now, on with the show!
