i just love this dress, and i'm sooooo psyched about making one, and maybe a couple more for girlfriends too!  I would like to make one to wear to work; but can't quite figure out how to cover my back with the straps so it's "appropriate office attire," as they say where i work  Wink  any pix or can ya'll tell me how to design straps to cover your back?  Thanks!

When I wrapped mine I put the two straps over my shoulders then keeping them flat (not twisted) I crossed them over my back and back around the front.  Because my straps are but wider (to accomodate the girls) they cover nicely.

You could also make or buy a little tube top to wear underneath (or even a camisole).

This tutorial was VERY easy to follow, thanks for writng it all out. Easy, cute, versatile in SO many ways... just awesome all around.

I made two dresses and one top a few days ago. Instead of the circle skirt, I want the asymetrical hem to showcase the stripes on my fabric. That makes it easier to sew the waistband on and if you want to hem it there are only straight edges. I ended up overlapping the straps a bit too much, but I don't mind.

One thing I tried was moving the waistband so the front is short and the back is super-long and it looks great either with or without pants.

Sorry if this has been posted already, but I was flipping through my Real Simple magazine this morning and saw they have an article on convertible clothing!

Having this tutorial, and looking at those other pieces really got the my mind cranking about what else I could make!

i did it! i did it! i used just about the heaviest jersey knit i've ever seen, but i wanted a cheap knit and this was it. this is the practice, i have a beautiful lightweight knit to do the real one. it's red with some orange black and green outlined flower detail. sounds hideous, but it's much prettier than it sounds.
anyways, sorry you can't see much detail of the wrapping or anything, but it's just a basic wrap style that's in a few of the posts.
ps- apologies, this is my first post so i don't know if i linked the pics right...

Rebexy, that first pic is excellent, very Marilyn Monore, but sort of a darker version....

I was flipping through Real Simple magazine at the grocery yesterday and they have an entire article on adjustable clothing!

This dress is not in there, but there are shawl/sweaters, jeans, jackets/vests, and dress/skirts. Some really cute stuff, but rather expensive.

Just letting y'all know that you are on the cutting ( ha!) edge of fashion!
