Does anyone know how this dress is constructed?

I saw the video ages ago and worked it out but of course I've forgotten and now I can't get their website (www.narcissist.com) to come up.

Is it just one big strap??

Wow. That's such a nifty dress idea. It'd be great for taking on holiday with a few accessories, and that would save you a ton of suitcase space.

As for the construction, I'm probably wrong but I would say it's skirt, a wide waistband panel with the belt attached, and then a strap attached to the waistband at both ends. Does that make sense?

Actually, I think the strap is a sleeve/tube of fabric.

yep - pretty much. I think it's a skirt with a big tube (one side in one colour, the other side in the contrasting colour) that's attached with each end of the tube going from centre back to centre front. I'd say the tube might be narrower at the middle than the ends. Then, there's the 'skinny sash' thing that is attached in the centre at the centre back.

They're great these convertible dresses, aren't they? I really like the convertible maternity dress too. So many dresses to make  .......

Yes, that's in the same vein but it's got a waistband and two long separate straps (I was feeling lazy and wanted to forego the endless wrapping and knots that would possibly undo at inappropriate times  Wink)

sorry - still haven't gotten around to it.

BUT (amending my last explanation of what it is after watching the vid on youtube -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKl3r30X30g)

I think it's a skirt with a big tube that's attached with one end of the tube attached on the right front of the skirt and the other on the left front (like a halter). I'd say the tube might be narrower at the middle than the ends. Then, there's the 'skinny sash' thing that is attached in the centre at the centre back.
