MY DIL likes those new swing tops for her & daughter where the sides are longer than the front--for wearing with leggings. It looks like they are on the bias, not just an A-line shape.
Could you cut a top on the bias from a T pattern in knits or wovens? The same for skirts?
I have noticed that the line drawings show a severe angle cut onto the pattern piece. Try looking at some patterns online and see if you can figure out how to make the pattern piece. I think also that shams may have posted on her blog about this one time.

The ones I've seen are not cut on the bias, especially if they are knits because there is no bias in a knit. They do have angular lower sections that fall into those interesting shapes. Mostly they are square.
