I adore all of the infinity dresses I've seen on here! While I would simply love to be a dress kind of girl (infect I am attempting to work on that) I just don't get the chance to wear them all that often Sad I WILL be making an infinity dress....as soon as I clear out some of my current projects, and probably one for my sister, who is definitely a dress girl!

In the mean time I used a jersey that I got off the clearance table a few years ago, it was only a two way stretch, but it worked out okay.





I serged the hem to keep it from rolling, I love the fact that I could do the whole thing on my serger...I'm still learning to use it



The basis is a two part tube top with the straps sewn between to chest band and the lower part, I based the shape of the lower part off of my favorite t-shirt plus some length.

I'd love to hear what you think, and if anybody has a good idea of how to keep the back from puckering I'd love to hear!

Thanks for looking!

I, too, like the shirt, pucker included.  The color is great, and it looks really nice on you.  I also like how you altered the typical infinity dress pattern so it would work well for a top.  Very nice!

It looks great!
I must be really stupid (or not good enough at English), because I just can't figure out, how it is constructed. Could I persuade you to show a picture of the top without the beautiful you in it, so I can see the construction?

I found this tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=112287.0

And now I think, that I get it: A short tube around yours boobs, a longer tuber around your lower torso, sewn together.
And with the straps sewn between the two tubes in the front (at a place so they cover your boobs, when you turn them upwards to use them as straps)?

So basically you do like in the tute in the link, but have sewn the two tubes together? I like it! Much easier and a better fit I bet.

I have some dark brown jersey somewhere.....I think I have just enough time to make an Inifinity Shirt in time for going on holiday tomorrow. Smiley  Smiley

By the way, what about som of that "strapless bra -tape" at the top of the tube on the inside, to prevent the top from falling down and become lumpy in the back?

Of you could fit the top with bra-hooks and use transparent straps?

Og make the "boob tube" a bit wider and then smock it, so it will fit tighter? (That way you could also make an Infinity Shirt out of non-stretchy material).

Or make something so you can tie/fix/secure the top to the bra underneath? (I know that I will definitely wear a bra under a top like this, my front assets have completely forgotten what perky means....)
