Help! I have seen free patterns for the Infinity/Infinite Dress, but I am looking for something similar to the AngelRox full length dress pattern. Any suggestions? I love the dress, but cannot afford $188 + shipping! I have some bamboo jersey just waiting for this project. There are pics on the AngelRox site, plus there are demo videos available @ http://www.angelrox.com/videos.htm that show what the wrap looks like before it is "wrapped". Please help!

That actually looks like it's just a rectangle for the body, with two longer rectangles sewn together (you can see the back center seam--or front center seam?--in one of the videos) at the short ends, and then sewn lengthwise to the top of the first rectangle, centered so that it's a big giant T shape, with a very fat trunk, and very skinny arms.  The hem is all lettuce edged, and it probably curves very slightly at the bottom points.  If you wanted a bit of flounce to it, you could curve the top and bottom edges of the rectangle ever so slightly, and flare out the sides, so you have a traditional A-line skirt shape, but supersized for your body.  The width of the body is probably 1.5 times your widest measurement (which is why I, as a very decidedly pear shaped person, would flare the rectangle out, so that it would drape over my hips, instead of clinging).  Hope that made sense!

Yep, except, looking at some of the vids, I think that big rectange is actually 3 panels all slightly flared (triangular) to give an a-line, as you suggested (with the two on the side panels curved at the corners)
