Back to my daughter. Her label is Love Laced and you can find her label - Love Laced facebook page - here. She cuts up old clothes and re-stitches them adding beads and trimmings as she goes along. It's all very ad hoc and wildy avant garde. The kind of stuff - Suzie Lau - wears.

I can't give the dimensions as I don't have the top here. But I'm going to speculate what they are. The sizing would vary depending on how wide and tall you are so you basically need to make it to your own size. My daughter is a dress size 10 and I would say her top was around 1.70 centimetres long and 45 wide. It's a very long rectangle.

The fabric has to be stretch knit. Very important as it has to wrap around your body. It's a smaller version of a sari but with the ends closed to encase the arms.
Basically you need to edge stitch the rectangle to neaten the

To wear -
Hook end on arm and pull up to rest on shoulder. See Figure 2.
Wrap around front of body. See Figure 3.

As you can see my daughter used to button badges to secure the top but you could use brooches or if the top is tight enough leave it plain.
