I'm just a beginner at sewing and I've never made anything without a pattern before...therefore I don't completely understand the construction of the batwing top by Shareen Vintage. She makes these tops from vintage Indian skirts, and to my understanding there should be a few seams in there somewhere. Does anybody have a tutorial or simple written instructions for this kind of top?

Hey, So I went to the website and looked further at this top.
 http://www.shareenvintage.com/shop/shareen-again/day/shareen-again-batwing-top-295.html

And this is my estimation of what's going on (excuse the terribleness of these pictures, I'm a sewist not a graphic designer!!!)

So the one I just linked to has horizontal strips on the back and vertical strips on the front and a back center seam.
So, she started with a Sari


Then, I'm not sure about the angle of this cut or the proportions of anything, but maybe she cut it something like this


And then made the back center seam by sewing it like this


Then, you fold the sides to the top (meeting the numbers) creating a small arm hole.


Again, i'm not sure about the proportions, but this is the basic idea of what seems to me to be going on.
