Thanks guys...

Nothing's set in stone yet, a) because I have very little money, and b) because my craft store sort of sucks.. I'm hoping to get to a store with a broader selection sometime soon. We'll see how it works out. Smiley I'll keep you posted!

Hi...I've made a couple of infinity dresses and have one posted somewhere back on page 100 or so.
But here's a new twist.
My husband is about to return from 15 months in Iraq and I wanted to make dresses for my three girls for the welcoming ceremony (we did this the last time he was deployed) and they asked for an infinity dress...little mini craftsters that they are   Grin
But I had been eyeing the redondo skirt for a while and trying to find enough time to work on it so I thought I'd combine the two.
So here is my infinity/redondo dress...modeled by my middle daughter.  Of course, it took much longer than the two hour single seam dress but I think it came out pretty cool.  I didn't buy a pattern I just studied the tips from other craftsters on the site to come up with the skirt pattern.
Enjoy!

That dress is fabulous alohamom2three! I'm quite jealous Wink

I've been working my way through this board (around pg. 80 now!), so I figured it was about time I attempted one of these. I veerrrryy carefully cut out the pieces from this gorgeous teal rayon/spandex I paid way too much for, and pinned it all together. Sewed, ripped out a couple of inches when I realized I had the wrong stitch on, sewed some more, inserted some elastic for extra security, tried it on... Somehow I manged to miss one of the straps while sewing. Waited a day before getting out the seam ripper. Take two: pinned the straps on and skipped the waistband and elastic for the time being. Good thing too, because after I sewed the straps on, I realized they were wrong side up. Argh.... Still haven't ripped them off, but have been enjoying wrapping the straps. The versatility of this dress is all that's keeping me going right now. Leave it to me to mess up the only seam.

hello from austria!

i really love this dress, i needed a long one for a quite noble ball here in vienna and i just had about 5 hours to get one. so i made this out of fuchsia pannevelvet for the straps and taffeta for the skirt (both fabrics are furnishing fabrics and cost less than 1€/m  Wink). the skirt is third circle, the photo was taken very late (or better early), so it looks a little crumpled...

(i hope i haven't made to many mistakes, my german, spanish and italian would be better i guess...)

Phew! Well, I haven't add the waistband yet (although i really need to, it slides down a ton from the weight of the skirt!), but I  thought I'd share that i finally had success. Third time's the charm eh? I think I might shorten it a couple inches, until it hits just above my knee, but I haven't decided yet...





The last one is my favorite way to wear it, but I'm pretty sure it would only work for a beach cover-up or a toga party. Ah well. Not many different ties because I'm feeling tired and uncreative. True color in spinning shot. My brother picked out the color for me, I think he did good job!
