When my children were growing up I used to take all my husband's, and my old jeans and shirts and make simple shorts with elastic bands for my kids. Then for my girls and Myself I would make little sun tops out of strips of material.
Here is how that is done:
Take approximately a two foot wide piece of material, fold it in half, stitch it up the open side. You now have a tube, turn it right side out, flatten it and fold it like a fan, in the most center of the fan make one line of stitches across all folds of the fan. This drapes over your neck, the fans pleats form the cups/front of your top. Now put a band around the bottom of the pleats. Make sure you have left it long enough to be able to tie it in the back.
Can you post a photo for this? I like the idea, but I'm a visual learner. If not, do you know of a website where we might see a photo? Thanks for the tip.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words...in this case it would be a great addition. I am a crafter, but don't do a lot of sewing and it would take a picture or two for me to envision what you are describing. Sounds cute, but I can't see it in my mind's eye.
