The photoshoot that is the source of this pic mentioned that the stylist sewed it herself using french tulle.

Looks like it would be pretty easy to do.

Here’s a tutorial      http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/ruffle_shrug

I would use a more delicate ribbon

if you don’t sew you could search for ruffle shrug on Etsy.

If you have even a small aptitude with sewing you could likely make that yourself depending on what you wanted the back to look like. My sewing teacher taught me how to do ruffles the other day. So basically, you’d get that pink polkadot tule and cut it to the width you want, but likely you’d want a pretty LONG length since you’re going to scrunch it up. You just take the tulle and run one or two lengths of stitching down the centre (close together if you’re doing two, I’d use a heavier weight thread to make sure it doesn’t break). Make sure you leave a long tail of thread at either end of the stitch. Tie off one end. Now grab the threads at the top end (where you haven’t tied off) and hold tight to the one at the back, start scrunching the fabric down, sliding it along the thread. When you’ve gotten the length you want, tie it off. Then you can stitch the two ends together and voila, ruffles in a circle that you could just loop around you!

I wish I could draw you a diagram, but I’m glad you got the jist of what I was saying 😉 It’s easy enough! This is a pretty good description.
