This top couldn't be any easier. Here's what you need to make your own:
-large scarf (mine is 38" square)
-2 metres of wide ribbon
-standard sewing kit (thread, scissors, sewing machine)
1) To start, simply decide which part of your scarf is the top and which is the bottom. The design might be the same all around so it might not make a difference but if yours has a one way pattern take a few minutes to figure this out.
2) Cut your ribbon in half so that you have 2 one metre pieces. Dab a bit of Fray check on each of the ends to stop your ribbon from fraying in the wash. Then measure about 10" up the sides from the bottom of each corner and attach each piece of your ribbon. If you attach it to the front like the photo below then you won't see the stitching when you wear your top.
Guess what?!?!?! That's it!! That's all you have to do.
Now I'll show you how you can wear it:
1) Drape the scarf across your body covering one side and bringing the two top corners up to the opposite shoulder.
2) Tie the ends of the top corners together at your shoulder.
3) Scrunch up your scarf so that the length sits somewhere close to your waist/hips or whatever is comfortable.
4) Wrap the scarf around your body, overlapping to ensure there's no big gaping hole under your arm.
5) Pull tightly and tie the ribbon together at the opposite side.
There are lots of other variations. Just play with it and see what you come up with!
