I came across this thread - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104089.0 - soon after I discovered Craftster, and have wanted to make an infinity dress ever since.  This afternoon, I finally got around to it.  My husband and I are throwing a cocktail party for the Oscars, and so I decided that it would be the perfect excuse to try out Rostitchery's tutorial.  I made mine as a pencil skirt, rather than a circle skirt, to give it a slightly more formal look (plus, I just like pencil skirts  Tongue).  I cannot stress how fabulous this dress is.  I LOVE it.  It took less than an hour to make, it was simple to put together, and the results are awesome.  There will definitely be more of these in my future.

Here are a few (bad) pictures I took of my tying experiments.  I'm having so much fun playing with ways to wear this dress.





Thanks for looking!

OK -so I'm positive this is a stupid question. But, I'm new to sewing and I want to try this dress. How did you mod the circle skirt to make it a pencil instead? Thank you thank you thank you!

That looks great!  I really like way you did the skirt part.
It's also hard to believe that it's the same dress in both pictures, since they look so different. 
I love the way you have it in the second photo.

I love, love, love that dress. It looks amazing on you, too. Definitely going to have to make this dress soon. It'll be hard to top yours, though... Wink

Thanks for all the replies!  Everyone should try this dress - it is so much fun to make, and even more fun to play with after you have made it.

That's not a stupid question at all!  I just made the skirt a rectangle, rather than a circle.  I measured halfway around my waist, and then from my waist to my knees, and cut out a rectangle of that size twice.  Then I sewed the rectangles together by stitching up the long sides (with right sides together), flipped it right side out, and had my pencil skirt.  After that, I followed the directions in Rostitchery's tutorial for attaching the waistband and the straps.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
