Seen here (she changes the skirt into the cape at 4:30): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDnlrfq5tQE

I'd love to make this sometime, though probably not for a while because I'm just learning to sew. But I've been wondering how a reversible skirt/cape like that could be made, particularly how it could close as a skirt? I feel like a zipper or velcro would show in the cape, and anything else would take longer to take off. Any ideas?

Her waist is TINY, which is why it only looks slightly stupid when she wraps her skirt around her neck Tongue

I think a good way to approach this would be to make a 1/2 circle skirt with two skirts sandwiched into one waistband. There's a tute right here on Craftster, but I think this one is much more educational because it also talks about 3/4 and full circle skirts.

I would make the waistband with a drawstring so you can tighten it for when you put it around your neck. I would do this an inch or two from each edge of the skirt on the cape-ward side, so it doesn't show when you're wearing it as a skirt. You can make a buttonhole or an eyelet in the waistband to feed the drawstring through.

Hope all that makes sense, I should be in bed Tongue

Good point about the tiny waist, I was actually somehow thinking that the cape went the other way, as in the part of the skirt that were the waistband and hem were the long parts of the cape. I see in the video that's not how it was done, but that might work better.
