Oooh very military-esque, like 'Don't mess with me! I can sew and I know how to use it!' haha. Smiley But really, love the color and the chain draping.

Thank  you so much! It still needs some work, but I was so excited I just had to post prematurely.

So my stepmom is a neatfreak and since she and my dad have been on a diet, they were throwing out a lot of old stuff. I snagged this blue sweatshirt and i was just going to make it into a hoodie, but i changed my mind...i 'm a woman ...i'm allowed to. LOL...I was scrolling through my old bookmarks and was inspired by AllieAnalogue's capelet. I  lacked a lot of materials, so it's not lined ( gonna line with faux-Burberry fleece I saw as a $3 blanket at Walgreens.) I also took the buttons from a skirt that i couldn't wear anymore.and I had some silver chain leftover from a jewelry kit i had ...so tell me what you think. **Please be nice**
-Thanks! (^_^)

Superb Dress! I've been tinkering with the same tute and trying my own infinity dress. Yours is gorgeous!!! I too love the way you did the straps.

Also, did you do a floor length circle skirt or A- line? A lack of side seams, seem to offer more "infinite" options for wear.

Anyway, you make that dress look great. Sooooo talented!

I did an A-line. But there is only one seam and it runs straight down my butt and onto the ground. I kinda just wrapped it around me until the ends met. Then I cut it on an angle and that gave me that drape. I have yet had enough room to cut one with no side seams.lol. hope that helps.

OH my gosh I lovelovelove it! I saw a dress at AA like it but because I am a starving student couldnt justify buying it, maybe I'll follow in your foot steps and make my own! Sorry if you've answered this but what type of material did you use?

I used this jersey i got out of walmart's dollar bin. I think it was like a silk jersey or something. Not sure. I do not know fabric's that well. Alls I know is it feels absolutely AMAZING when you've just shaved your legs!LOL!

Cool This is so amazing. I have  been trying to create that pattern for months now...I tried and failed...but you did such an amazing job on the Leanne Marshal-esque skirt....it's FN amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would love to make a tutorial. It is VERY simple and so much fun to sew. It is not difficult at all.

Could you please?! Maybe because i'm in med school , i overcomplicate everything! i really want to make this skirt pronto for my graduation. Thanks so much!
