question for the 'spertz

Hello, I'm new to this community. I've just been browsing for a few days now but I have a question.

I don't know how to sew, but I like to rip up and deform oversized tshrirts from Goodwill. My roommate, however, has sewing ability and a ton of craft stuff. I was looking at Urban Outfitters and I found this top...



I was wondering how you guys would go about making something like that out of tshirts and scrap fabric (for the summer heat!). I'm trying to get ideas for my roommate, but since she doesn't have formal sewing experience, we both kinda need things spelled out for us, lol. Also, would it be necessary to use a serger in order to get the look of that vest?

Any advice you could give would be much appreciated. We're not looking to exactly duplicate, but get the basic design down and then add on. Besides, it's too plain anyway. :) Thanks!
