3 questions:

1. Are most of you hemming this, or leaving the edges raw?
2. This one looks seamless at the waist: http://www.shopbutterbynadia.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=19  Any ideas how it's made?  Like the Infinity dress pattern someone posted, but with a flared skirt?
3. Does anyone have a link to the Martha Stewart 12-seam dress or whatever it is that several people have mentioned?  I can't find it, so I'm not sure what you're all talking about.

The Butter by Nadia dress looks like it has a seam where the straps meet the circle skirt, just like on the one tuted by Rostitchery  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104089.0, though their skirt is noticeably longer, which would require really wide fabric. That website says it is rayon/ spandex and that the fabric is made for that designer..I'm thinking extra wide Slinky type super stretchy fabric.

Thanks, McJulie.  I missed the seam, myself (my monitor, maybe?).  I like the long skirt, but I'm short, so I can probably manage it.

I'm guessing there's a seam hidden under where the straps are wrapped around the waist. 

Also, if you cut two half circles out of a single layer, you can get a longer skirt.

ok, i just read this whole thread becuase i'm thinking of making this dress for my best friend's prom, now, i haven't done any clothing before, so my mom will help me (she knows how). However, she says that making a dress is not easy, that it's really hard to get it to drape right on your body, etc.
But, this seems like a really easy dress to make fit right, so i was just wondering if it really is, for those of you that have made it, i mean, is it really as easy and elegant as it seems?

Also, one last thing, wouldn't it be possible to do one color skirt and straps and different color waistband o same waistband and skirt but different color straps? or would it just look too weird?

Any help would be great, thanks!

Several people have done the straps a different color; it gives the illusion of having a separate top and skirt.  They've all looked nice!

i'm not sure if it belongs here or in the sewalong thread of this dress but i just stumbled along a kinda "infinity dress"-knock off- a infinity like with (maybe?) shorter straps and a bubble hem from asos ( i think a british company)

anyway, here's the link

I made one of these a while ago using Rostitchery's tutorial. I learned that circle skirt, not so good on me. So I pulled out a short A-line dress that fits well and used that as the template for the skirt for my second attempt.

I laid the dress on top of the fabric and marked the fabric from just under the bustline to the hem. I cut a front and back piece, which adds 2 more seams, but the skirt works so much better for me. Then I cut the straps and attached over an elastic band. This eliminated the low back issue that I didn't like.

This second A-line version turned out much better. Though I need to find some better (thinner) jersey.
