    Take it apart and use the pieces for a pattern.

    If you want to take it apart, the easiest way to do that is to cut it as close to the seams as you can. Then, add whatever extra you want, plus a seam allowance.

    Its hard to see Im sorry its the best I could do , its like a giant bandana cut out a neck hole and seem it up then run ribbon some how thru it at the half way point up to half way makeing arm holes , its hard to discribe but looks fairly easy for someone that knows what they are doing it seem so simple take a piece of matiral seam all corner fold over and apply ribbon. but Im not shure I could do it .

    You can do it. At the shoulders is there a seam? Or is the fabric just folded in half and the neck hole cut out? At the bottom is it seamed or open at the arm holes?

    Also, is there a seam on either side of the ribbon?

    This looks about as easy as they get. Answer the questions, get me a photo of the neck hole if you can... and where the ribbons are in the casing...

    as far as I can tell its just one big piece of matirial, with a neck hole cut into it there isnt any other seams really exctpt where the reibbon is laced run thru what not for makeing the sleaves , there not closed ther ribbon runs up half way in such a way that I can pull it and it will crimp the sides of it and I can then tie it or I can pull it slack. it kinda reminds me of one of those ponchos you can buy at markets a little . Ill try to get more pics
