My prom was on May 18 and I just got around to posting my dress! I should have done this on May 19, but ah, oh well. Here it is!

Front:

Me with my date, who also happens to be my boyfriend of a year and 8 months. He looks a bit silly here.  Cheesy

Back:


I used rostitchery's lovely infinity dress tutorial (http://rowena.typepad.com/rostitchery/infinity-dress.html). However, my dress is floor length so instead of a circle skirt I made an A-line skirt. I used 7 yards of dark blue knit polyester, which is rather thin so both the straps and the skirt are double layered. I had a Jo-anns coupon and the fabric was rather cheap to begin with so it only ended up costing 15 bucks. I wrapped the dress in the Grecian style that rachelily used for her graduation dress (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=245247.00).

Thank you so much for the compliments, rachelily! Yes, I received lots and lots shocked faces and "wows" when I told people that I actually made my dress.

gorgeous! it's a million times better than those sparkly, poofy, satiny monstrosities!
just a question- how does a gal wear a bra with the that? or do you go commando and the dress holds everything up for you? i'm thinking of making my own infinity dress, but not if i feel like i'm one strap's tug away from being naked.  Undecided

Thanks all!

I had to go commando here, and since I had never done that before I was a little worried but figured everything would work out fine since I'm not very big in the chest area. I'm only a 34B. True, I didn't get very much lift or shaping, but I tied the straps tight enough that I was comfortable and never felt like they were going to fall or pull away and reveal too much.

Here's a better view of the bust area:


You can kind of see how I wrapped the dress in a way so that the straps covered the ladies twice to give some extra support.
