Hi everyone! Thank you so much  for ALL of the lovely comments! I am so thrilled that you all liked the idea.   I truly believe that Craftster brings out the best in everyone who joins. I find  that creativty is so therapeutic for whatever someone maybe going through. "The end justify the means".

here are more pics as promised!








You're gonna flip at the next one I make ....I promise!

I'm sure I saw one of those on a fashion website the other day for $100+ Shocked
Well done!! It's excellent
I'm really new here and a beginner sewer, so I really admire people who can make such cool outfits!

Thank you everyone for all your support. I am a student in med school  for Pharmacy and my parents discourage me from ever doing anything "crafty" or "creative" and so  when I make something , it's a big deal to me and I appreciate all the love so much so thanks.




I so get that. When I was twelve, I told my parents that when I grew up, I was going to be a director/screen writer and my mom laughed and said "You're going to be hungry for a long time then," implying that I would never get rich, but I took it literally and feared I wouldn't earn enough to buy food.

Cut to twelve years and two university degrees later and they can't stop bragging about how gifted I am at sewing and crafting and arts in general.

Sure, I'm an English teacher doing well for myself, sewing only as a hobby. . . but I can't help but wonder what could have been.

Some people think that being creative isn't practical, but if I didn't have crafting and sewing, I'd go nuts pretty much literally. . . and where's the practicality of me going bonkers?

I find it so incredibly sad that people are out there discouraging one of the most valuable things their child could ever have, CREATIVITY! Omg it really tears me up to hear that. Whomever said creativity isn't practical, I disagree! In times of financial hardship, being thrifty and creative can really get you by. Your creativity is your most valuable asset! Even if you have NOTHING, as long as you have creativity and skills to back up your drive & determination, you can survive anything. Degrees aren't everything and I'd never make my children feel that way.

Superb Dress! I've been tinkering with the same tute and trying my own infinity dress. Yours is gorgeous!!! I too love the way you did the straps.

Also, did you do a floor length circle skirt or A- line? A lack of side seams, seem to offer more "infinite" options for wear.

Anyway, you make that dress look great. Sooooo talented!

This dress is absolutely beautiful, and you look stunning in it!  I bet your friends who know you made it are amazed.  Making one of these dresses is definitely on my to-do list.
