        Well, a lungi could be a good way to start. Few other things require
        more elementary sewing than a lungi. Lungis sold in Bangladesh and
        other places are sold unsewn.

        I suppose you could staple it together -- but that would add prickliness
        and shorten the lungi life-span (rust, for one thing).

        Fabric shops sell fabric glues. You could try gluing the ends together.
        If you always have the seam in one of the rabbit ears, then there
        would be no stress on the seam.

        Exactly right. I m fond of Madras Plaid, but any cloth would do (hmmm, silk...). Just check bolt width to make sure it suits you. CL

              Although pants can also be multi-use, the only things they do better
              than a lungi are save embarrassment if you fall out of a tree or do a
              Marylin Monroe and reduce entanglement when bushwacking. They are also
              likely to be warmer when it's cold.
