I went to the thrift shop today and got this really cool purple, green, and blue tie dyed shirt with bleached flowers and palm trees on it that is really long and baggy. I want to do that thing where in the middle it scrunches when you pull the strings and in the end i hope will create more figure than just a straight long tunic that will seem really big and..blah.

It's probably relatively easy but i'm just...challenged, (i'm not really experienced, i just sort of dive in and get confused,) so--if you have any idea, please reply.

Thank you  Grin

Buy some matching or contrast bias tape, sew it around the waist wear you want to add your definition, on both edges, leaving the ends open, to make a tunnel. Thread a cord through it. Wa-la!
