I found a simple DIY wrap blouse tutorial by Whitney, who blogs at freshly given >http://freshlygiven.com/blog/diy/tutorial-grandmas-skirt-to-blouse, based on a vintage advert for “wrapped cloth” in the LIFE Archive, Whitney created her own DIY wrap blouse from her grandmothers old skirt. My version incorporated a piece of tie-dyed fabric purchased from Vinnies op shop ($4), which interestingly, came with instructions on wall hanging ideas! My top is blogged here >http://www.recycled-fashion.com/2011/10/diy-tie-dye-wrap-blouse.html
