Heya,

I bought some cheap satin print fabric ages ago and decided that I wanted to make a Kariza style scarf dress because I'm really into convertible dresses (I've clocked up 4 infinity dresses and I fancied a bit of a change).

I'm quite pleased with this one and I think I'm going to wear it to a friends wedding this summer.





I didn't have enough fabric for this one to make it the same way as the red one, so I improvised a little. I'm not really sure how I feel about the front, but I do love the fabric. Please excuse the frumpy-ness; the ribbon is a little bit thinner on this dress so it's much harder to tie. I should probably wear a belt with this one two.





Also, I thought I'd throw in a pic of my favorite infinity dress in dark purple; I managed to get really good quality lycra for 3.50 a yard. I now have masses of the stuff.





Thanks for checking out my dresses, hope you like them. Smiley

I think the red one is absolutely stunning (but then it would be my favourite: it's red!). But all of them are really nice.

Those first two fabrics are stunning, but all three look wonderful.

all are great, but the first is really stunning. I just got back from vacation a few weeks ago, and I swear a bunch of stands were selling that same type of dress for like, $60.
