This is the first time I made something with any structure. It needs a couple tweaks, but otherwise, I LOVE it. And snaps are wonderful - using a hammer takes out aggression perfectly!



(It got a little bunched up when I was taking the photos.)

And another top/dress I made from the remnants of an infinity dress:
 


And yes, that is my dog biting my hand. He thought I was having too much fun with the camera and not enough fun with him.




If it's fuzzy, you can right click and View Image. I hope any of that makes sense. I used two-way stretch fabric and all the edges are raw (I love fabric that doesn't fray!). It'll look a little different from the one in the photo, but you can make it longer and tighter and overlap the midsection (which is what I did in the photo).

I swear it's really, really easy! Please let me know if I left anything out. And please excuse my Paint drawing skills. Eek.

If at first you don't succeed, go buy more fabric.

Thank you! I didn't use a pattern for either. I tend to make stuff up as I go along. I just started sewing about three months ago (before that, I could barely sew on a button).

The black dress is really a huge rectangle (I'll take a picture of it very soon). I was inspired by the versatility of the fabric when I made the infinity dress, so I starting playing with the leftover material. It's not quite finished b/c It wasn't wide enough to go all the way around my backside, but I'm going to buy more of the fabric and work on it again. Then I will take lots of photos and make a tutorial ...

And since I have some fixes to do for the teal top, I'll make a tutorial for that one, too!

You guys are all so sweet! I'm so flattered y'all want a tutorial!

The black one is my fave - it looks absolutely GORGEOUS on you.  And no pattern?!  Fantastic work!  Grin
