actually i would venture to guess that the straps come out from the side seams in the dress where the "boob tube" is.  if the straps came up vertically, they would gap hugely when wrapped around the chest like that, so it makes sense that they would have to come out of the dress horizontally to achieve that strapless effect. 

in the picture showing the back, the two straps would then come out from the side seams (one from each side, allowing them to be pulled forward for front-wrapping or pulled backward, for the look in the picture) and then they are crossed behind to then come to the front of the girl's chest. in the second picture, they are simply continually wrapped horizontally around her chest.

i hope that makes sense!  ill draw a picture if you like.  basically, the difference is that in rowena's dress, the straps come out vertically from the front; in this dress, they come out of the sides, horizontally.

Actually, and I only know this, because I own one, it's just two pieces of fabric, layered over each other. The top one is shorter & leaves the bottom layer showing out the bottom. Its connected with a waistband that has long ends for tying

There are videos here, that watching may help you see how they're made: http://www.karizadesigns.com/videos/ choose the one at the bottom that says "Kariza Vintage Instructional Film."

The actual wrap skirts are made with vintage saris. Have fun & good luck, I'll be making two soon myself!

This looks a lot like the  Twobirds bridesmaid one size fits all.  What type of jersey fabric would you need that doesn't cling?   Huh
