Megpoid GUMI "overskirt"?

Cosplaying Megpoid GUMI (http://i943.photobucket.com/albums/a...1356098095.jpg) this NDK.

Skirts, garter, and headphones done, boots, belt and wig on their way, and working on the vest as we speak. Pretty much totally complete, but I'm stuck on one item.

The "overskirt" covering the seams of the yellow and white skirt, I have no idea how to sew anything like that, and I can't find any guides online that resemble the piece. Any help on this one, patterns, tutorials, anything like that, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

If you're talking about the orange top piece, mine is just a long piece of fabric with elastic down the middle (the long way). That way I can just wrap it around my waist and secure it with the belt.

I don't know if that makes any sense, I can show pictures if you want?
<------ Picture is Nonon progress (hat)

Working on:
Nonon Jakuzure - Kill la Kill

Dream Cosplays:
Shiek - The Legend of Zelda

I may be wrong but to me, it looks like a sort of bowtie shape that wraps around the hips with the top corners pointing downwards. If you end up trying that out, you might want to make some mock-ups first.
What's this for? It's a wig.
What's it for? To disguise yourself from yourself.

You mean the part that the belt is on? The part that looks like a shirt collar, but on the skirt?
I had the same question..It's basically this:
The red lines are where you'd fold. Just make it like you would any collar, with 2 layers sandwiching interfacing, and fold the areas that need folding and iron then doen. Add belt loops and a belt
