I'm so   confused about the band. Like everything about it. I know it's prob. not as difficult as i'm thinking about it, but im so lost.. Sad   And how do you make the dress have the "sleeve" look?

wow motorcitypinup!!  Your dress is so flattering on you and you have shown us once again how versatile this dress is!!

 I see that it is appearing a lot on wistlists for swaps and since it is so easy, it makes swappers like me look like sewing goddesses to our swap partners who don't sew--ha ha!!

I come to this post often to get inspired by everyone's dresses !!!!

Just browsing online for inspiration and found this:

and this:

Also, I saw a version of this on an episode of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' the one where Larry and his wife renew their vows. For the ceremony she wore a pink satiny shirt which was basically a halter, but had 'ties' attached at the cleavage that were similar in that you could arrange them in different ways.
Here's a link to stills from the episode - it's not the best shot of the shirt but you get the idea...

I HAVE to make a version of this dress! (haven't got around to getting fabric for it)
BTW, I've been glued to this thread and I totally love everyones take on the infinity design.

Okay so i relize now that my problem with this dress is the circle skirt. when i fold the fabric i am getting a retangle instead of the square. when i do manage to ge the square the skirt is way to short. i am a size 26-28 so can someone please tell me how to do this. i need the skirt to hang to my knees. also when i cut the waist it takes almost half the material. is ther a wa to just slit the frabict to get the openig?

I think what you need to do is to cut out 2 half circles and sew them together. I know there are tutorials on here somewhere showing how but I'm having PC probs today and can't make search work for me. The wider the fabric, the longer you can make your skirt. I've made one today as part of a different dress using the square instead of cutting out a cirlce, it gives a kind of hankerchief hem look, and because I didn't have to cut any off to make it rounded it is floorlength.

Yay! I'm happy, I finished it!!!
I made a square skirt instead of a circle skirt though. I love it so much!! The one thing that bugs me is the fact that I used printed fabric, so it has a backside to it that doesn't look nearly as interesting as the front side(you can see in some of the pics at the bottom of the dress.)
Oh, and sorry for the big pics, I'm lazy. Tongue
