well, I have been wanting to make a convertible dress for ages, there was coming my childrens birthday party, and I wanted to use my lovely new shoes... I have nothing to match with them, I know! catastrofe!!... so I jump into the deep world of my fabric stash and guess what! I found an amazing fabric just the same colour of my shoes  Grin so I cant let  pass the oportunity to try the infinity dress, even when the fabric wasnt enough , the long stripes came out not so long, and the skirt had to be cutted in four pieces, but anyway, I love it and definitley want to make it again (but red, and something silky)
well enough words, let's go to the pictures!


sexy shot Wink





I hate this one, I look like a pregnant (but trendy) woman  Cheesy but you have to see the skirt wide, and the other way I tied.


and least, check how my beloved shoes match perfectly with the fabric (sigh)

 EDIT: oh my God! I forgot to put the tutorial link, sorry, it was inspired in the Rostitchery infinity dress here: http://rowena.typepad.com/rostitchery/infinity-dress.html 

but I had to change a bit, because my fabric wasnt enough to make a circular skirt... and I really prefer this pattern, because the circular skirt makes me feel bigger , so I changed the circular skirt to a four pieces semicircular skirt,  and also puted a tube in the chest to make it more wearable, but I have to say that when you put without the tube (I hide it down) the dress looks amazingly sexy, maybe I will upload some pictures like this when I can fix the uploading trouble
 

My cousin fall in love with the pattern so I had to make one for her, I cant upload pictures ot it already, but I will show you soon, it was for a wedding party, so it was more as a cocktail dress...

please, tell me what you think
sorry about my english, as usal  Wink

This dress looks so good on you!  I love the color.  Did you put a tube all the way around the bust?  I made one of these, but since I have a large bust, I can't really bring myself to wear it out of the house, I was thinking maybe a tube around the top would help.  Anyway, you did a really great job making this.

This is stunning! The color is so beautiful, and it compliments your complexion wonderfully, and the dress fletters your figure so well. I bought fabric to make this dress, I need to get moving on it. This totally makes a case for hoarding fabric...sometimes a light bulb goes off and a gorgeous dress like this happens! Smiley

digital misfit :

I love that color, thats why I fall in love with the shoes  Cheesy you can borrow the shoes whenever you need them, by the way...I live in Mexico  Grin

I am sorry, I forgot to put the tutorial link, but I have already edited it, you got to try it, is easy and so comfy

maczmom:

the awesome Rostitchery already made it, thanks God for our creative craftsters!

labibliotecaria:

thanks  Grin

VirgoAnna:
thank you! you must try the tube top, it results so practical, and it can be hided too! and girls how hasnt very large bust can wear it without a bra because the tube gives control Wink

BananaBanana:
I know, could you believe it if I told you that they are Nine West, and I thrifted them, they were new!! and they cost about three bucks??? how cant I love them!!??

oh yes, it was about 3 meters more or less, 1.5 meters wide, but I have it in two pieces of 1.5 mts each, and guess what! I bought that fabric in clearance and was less than a dollar for each meter... so, the entire outfit costs about 6 dollars!!  Grin oh! I love my cheapy life  Grin

newyorkdoll:

thankyou very much! go get it! you are going to love it!!

Great job! You managed to get wonderful results out of a minimum of (bargain!) fabric (even if the straps are a bit short--you can correct that on the NEXT one you make). I like your adaptation of the skirt, too.

 This dress is SO easy, but I think we ALL learn something when we make it....

The dress is beautiful. The color looks great on you. I also can't believe how perfectly those cute shoes match! How fortunate! I really want to try making one of these, but I fear that it is still a little too advanced for my sewing skills.

Thanks!
NerdyCrochetGal it is not diffcult at all! is a very simple project, you should give it a try, maybe with a cheap stretch fabric so you will not cry if it didnt get perfect, but I really recomend you to sew it, in the original pattern it only has one single seam! and it looks gorgeous tied in other ways!
