Start by putting on the dress with the band of the skirt over the bust and the extended section at the front.
Tie a single knot with the drawstrings.
Adjust the gathering of the fabric on the drawstrings to form a tight loop.
Bring the drawstrings over the shoulders and cross them at the back.
Now bring both drawstrings down and around the waist.
Wrap the drawstrings around the waist a few times depending on your size, comfort and how long you would like them to be.
Finish by tying the drawstrings in a double knot or bow either in the front, back, or side.
Then simply make some final adjustments to complete your look!
