How To Make a Headband, Version 3: Easy Ribbon Headband

I've seen many headbands lately which use a loop of cord elastic that is cinched at the center, usually by a metal crimp, to form a figure eight (like Anthropologie's Oxford headband, Anthropologie's Fairytale Theater headband, Banana Republic's double ribbon headband, and Santi's metallic headband).

So when I'm shopping, it's majorly annoying to find and fall in love with a mini dress in a gorgeous pattern or color, cause throwing on a pair of leggings underneath it totally changes the look for me, and not usually in a good way. So I was thinking about this annoying situation a few weeks ago, and then I ran across this pin that I'd pinned ages ago and it sparked an idea. Instead of fighting the mini dress, how about I just make it work for me? An easy chop and hem, and suddenly it's a darling hi-low top that doesn't alter the gorgeous print, and doesn't look silly with leggings.
