So...I love the infinity dresses everyone makes.  I think it would be so much fun to have a piece of clothing that looked different everytime you wore it.
I decided to try an Infinity shirt, so I can still wear jeans but have fun with the tying.  I also wanted to see what a difference the length of the ties made and how bulky it really got after it was tied... and you know...all those things I wonder when I see a beautiful Infinity dress that I know I would never wear 'cause I am really not a dress wearing kinda woman.

Before.  I got this from a friend who didn't wear it because, ummm, it just isn't very flattering and is too hot for Boise summers and not warm enough for winter or fall.

I haven't thought of trying an infinity shirt.  May I ask how you went about it?

Instead of making a circle skirt, I made a tube top that only went from under my bust to just below my waist.   I attached the ties to the tube, the same way the dress is made. 
I made the ties the same length as I would have for a dress (1 1/2 times my height).  I was a bit worried that they would hang down too long but they don't.  Depending on how I wrap it, they end at my waist or my hips.  If they are too long, you could always cut them off.
