1  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Re: Infinity Dress on: May 11, 2010 09:32:23 AM
I made one of these a while ago using Rostitchery's tutorial. I learned that circle skirt, not so good on me. So I pulled out a short A-line dress that fits well and used that as the template for the skirt for my second attempt.

I laid the dress on top of the fabric and marked the fabric from just under the bustline to the hem. I cut a front and back piece, which adds 2 more seams, but the skirt works so much better for me. Then I cut the straps and attached over an elastic band. This eliminated the low back issue that I didn't like.

This second A-line version turned out much better. Though I need to find some better (thinner) jersey.

Saw this in the featured article on the home page today.
That glassware stamp is awesome. I'm having a "why didn't I ever think of that" moment!

Recently discovered Crafster.
I found the tutorial and this thread while searching for the Chameleon dress I found on Etsy. I was trying to find ways to wear the dress while I convinced myself it was worth the money.

Thank you Crafster and Rostichery for saving me close to $200!!

I made my first one about 3 weeks ago. I used a teal knit that I inherited from my Grandmother. Turned out OK. However, the circle skirt was too much for me.

I purchased a lovely navy jersey and finally cut into it this week after reading (most) of this thread. I decided to use a dress I already have as a pattern to get the fit just right. I have the skirt/body together and am going to finish the straps this evening. So far, fabulous!

My best friend is having her bachelorette or rather Bitchin' Hitchin' party this weekend. In the same day we will go to a nice dinner, have the "shower" portion of the party and go to karaoke. This dress will transition beautifully. I plan to take both dresses and come back with lots of pictures!
