How to make a beach bandeau

"This easy-to-make beach bandeau has a turban feel about it, but it’s simpler to make and to wear. Great for holidays, you can make this bandeau as wide as you like. I prefer to make mine really wide, then I can always scrunch it up for a narrower look if I feel like it. You can wear the bandeau with the gathers at either the top or the bottom. Jersey is great as it doesn’t fray and doesn’t need hemming."  Mary Jane Baxter
