I wore this one (made with a tight pencil skirt) to my 18th birthday party in September (it was a cocktail party and everyone had to wear cocktail dresses and suits) and loads of people were amazed that I made it:

I didn't use a pattern, just pinned fabric around my butt and legs, took it off and sewed it! make sure it's loose enough to walk in though, and it's best to have it above your knees else you won't be able to walk without taking tiny bitty steps!

Prettyandpetite i was wondering how you got the back to be higher?  I have been using an attached tube top but then you can't get the boobiliousness in the front.

Ok, so you have your circle skirt cut out, and the straps? Attach the straps directly to the circle skirt. Cut out a rectangle that would cover your breasts from under the bust line, over both of them. Sew the sides of this rectangle to either side of the straps and then to the other side of the circle skirt:

I'm no good at drawing but the pink is the outside material, purple is inside material (so the straps are laying face down, the back is face up) and the green lines are where you sew the back.

This dress is the sole reason I actually got a username! I thought it would be unfair to use the amaaaazing tutorial and not share it with you all so without further babbling....

This is the first one I made with a handkerchief hem but sadly I made the waist huge [I had no idea the material was THAT stretchy] so even with elastic it sort of falls down. It will most likely be given to one of my friends!

The second one is with the same material, but a circle skirt instead.

Then a few ways I discovered to do the straps!

[Sorry to just post links, I a) am a wee bit unsure of how to post actual pictures and b) think I saw somewhere that you have to post 10 times before you can do pictures]

rozame, welcome to Craftster  Cheesy
i'm glad you joined to show us your dresses. They are lovely and that last pic is a little risque too, I like that LOL I'm just the wrong shape and size to tie it that way  Smiley


Ditto!  But it's good to know this dress is sexy for those with petite boobies, as well as for us with the momma boobies, right Zaftig?  Tongue

this is awesomeness
I've been wanting to make a bathing suit with these convertable straps for some time. you've made it so easy to understand. i am truly motivated at this point!

I have an american apparel vid that shows a few other techniques to wrap something similar to this. Enjoy craftsters!

oh and here's another version of the Infinity wrapdress done by a Vancouver label called Narcissist. They're naming it the "Pamela":

boy - I knew I'd seen these links somewhere - you wouldn't believe how long it took for me to find them, so I thought I'd put them in again for others

The top is just the same top part, but a boob-tube thing sewn to the straps, one that fits over your hips :-) I'm not very good at explaining stuff, sorry!


did you put a "boob-tube thing" into the dresses too?  or how did you make it so your back does not show?  yours are so pretty!

i just made mine but i'm thinking im going to have to try again...i made my circle waaaay too big so it looks funny...but im trying to make it work!
