Okay.  I know that this shirt doesn't look Western.  It may even look Tahitian. The Subject Author is a compulsive liar (a.k.a I am).
No, actually I meant that it was fast to make. It only took about an hour to sew and cost me less than a dollar to make.
the bust shot:
the back (it may be hard to see, but it ties):

I am sew in love with this shirt.
Oh god, that was probably the worst joke I've ever made.
But comment! Please.

OKay, I'm glad that a tutorial is wanted. It makes me happy.
Use your imaginations with me on this one.  I'm using leftover fabric, so the pieces in the pictures aren't as big or as long as they should be.
Also, I'll tell you beforehand to hem all loose edges (I usually forget).

First, I cut off a long piece of material, wide enough to fully cover my chest and long enough to wrap around about twice. https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/64848pic_023.jpg

Then, I gather at the midpoint and sew. https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/64848pic_024.jpg

Then, pretending that I need the fabric past the two combs in the picture to tie the top securely against me, I cut another peice of fabric (longer than the top piece) to match the length. https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/64848pic_025.jpg

I then sew the bottom fabric to the top, leaving room on the top to tie together. https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/64848pic_026.jpg

Then, I sew the bottom fabric together (but not the top, I wanted it to tie).

I added ribbon as a halter strap by trying the shirt on, pinning the ribbon where I wanted it, and sewed it.

that is a super cute top and i also would love a tut!

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
