Looks good, Tally! I can't wait to make one of these but I'm waiting to find some fabric that's pretty cheap, 'cause I haven't sewn much by way of clothing.

Thanks! This is the first clothing I've made on a machine since I made a hoodie in home ec in highschool haha. It was super easy. Good luck when you do make it!

I finally got a sewing machine! And it was FREE!! A friend of ours had one that she was never going to use and asked if i wanted it. YAY. I have also found this really cute fabric on sale at walmart that I'm going to try it out on. I'm going to try it out maybe this weekend time permitting. My only question now is since I'm a total newb at any type of making clothing myself is this... How do I measure to get the length of the skirt? I know the measurement is my choice on length, but I have no clue how to do that. Do I just measure from waist to the length i want? I'm using a hankerchief style skirt, so I figure I'll need to make sure it will be long enough for both the high spots and the low spots yes? Sorry that I have so many questions. I've wanted to start making things for myself for years and never had the ability, and this site has sparked my want again, and I'm determined to finally do it since I now have something I want to make.

Anyway, thanks again for this thread, I am even more excited now about my wedding now that I don't have to stress about shelling out a lot of cash for a dress.

hey tally, glad to see i'm not the only one crazy enough to rock an infinity dress for my wedding! can't wait to see your finished product.

This thread inspired me to join and post after months of craftster lurking!
I made a dress similar to the one rostitchery's tutorial describes, but I don't have the band on mine.
Sorry for the bad cell phone pictures! This is my favorite way to wear mine:

Front... kinda.

I'd post pictures but I'm new, so they won't let me!
The fabric was 1.50 a yard!
And I love it. You can't see, but the dress goes down to my ankles in most styles.

Thanks for looking and thanks for this thread!

I've had about 5 metres of stretch knit sitting around for almost 3 years - I'd planned on making a 'huggable' type sling, but never got around to it! I guess I have the perfect project now! Although, I am not all that fond of it, it's chocolate brown with a pink design. Although, made into an infinity dress, I'm sure it will look stunning - I haven't seen an ugly one yet!! I aim to sew it tomorrow... hold me to it!! Wink

Hello all! I am going to my HS's prom this year (graduated last year, but going with a friend this year).. and I was just going to wear an old dress. Well, after lurking on this thread for a month.. I decided to give this a shot! I went out to Joann's and found cheap yellow polyester fabric for 2$/yd and made a prototype!






Some of my favorite ways to wear it..


Unfortunately this material is super-seethrough so I can't wear it anywhere other than the house (haha) without this tanktop on. Hopefully my trip to Joann's today will be successful in finding a prettier fabric!

I just finished this dress.  It is my first clothing I have made, and the first time I have used a stretchy fabric, so a big win over all.  I took someone's suggestion and doubled the straps and sewed them into tubes and turned them, and I wish I hadn't.  They seem too bulky.  I'll post pics after I figure out a way to put it on, the bulky straps just are not working for me yet.

This is my first try at the infinity dress and im loving it. So is everyone else that has seen it. Have plans for more, long and short, some with even hems some with asymmetrical hems.
