Infinity dresses are the bomb! I once had to go to a party and whipped one up half an hour before I had to head out.

My dress is comprised of a cut-out pattern and a neat pile of folded fabric...I was hoping to make it for next weekend, too. Maybe not...I've been running on very little sleep lately, preparing for a preview for our school's play. That and I'm making my prom dress in my spare time Tongue

http://www.threadbanger.com/post/6195/thread-heads-at-sxsw-day-2-how-to-make-a-slack-dress

upon discovering a pair of XXXL black slacks i found in the mens section at salvation army for $2.50 (thank you half-price day, you've saved my shoestring-college budget once again), i began my DIY-LBD endeavor.

the woman in the tutorial video (courtesy of threadbanger) made hers out of 2 different pairs, using a pantleg of each color, i just used both of the black)

for some reason, mine didnt fit correctly with the 2 zippers i tried, so i bought eyelets & made a corset type thign in the back. (also bought a white scarf at salvo for like 50c, cut it in half lengthwise, then sewed end to end ot make a long ribbon to put through the eyelets)

it puckers where the ribbon is & the bust makes me super flat, since i neglected to sew the darts in. (still contemplating a halter, or converting it into a foux-high-wasted-skirt-dress-thing)

but yeah! & fyi, im not including pictures because my dress sucks. Smiley
