Inspiration & pattern found here --------------->>  http://rowena.typepad.com/rostitchery/infinity-dress.html

Obviously I'm a little late for the bedsheet challenge, so I'm posting here!


I started out with this sheet that I found at a thrift store for $3.00. Couldn't pass it up.

I cut the circle out.

Then I cut the little circle out in the middle. And it was too big. Yikes. :\

After some finangling, ripping the seam out once, and putting it back together, I made it work!

It's seriously so much fun! If you've never made one before, I highly suggest it!

Next time I'm making the straps a wee bit wider, though.  
The sheet is 50/50 Poly/cotton, so it drapes okay, but is stiff enough to not cling to my body. I like it best that way.

Ha ha it says sheet! I love it! beautiful job too. This rocks.

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

it looks great! and congratulations on the successful finangling Wink

 i understood the original tutorial called for a stretch fabric, does this behave well without that?

The skirt is a lot poufier than it would be had I used a stretch fabric, but otherwise, the straps behave themselves well! My only issue was that it doesn't stretch to put on (and I'm too lazy to put in a zipper), so it's a teeny bit bigger in the waist and occasionally sits weird, but nothing that I can't fix by wrapping the straps around me tighter!

That's cute! I was wondering if a non-jersey version was possible, did you have to finish all the edges? That would be a whole lot of hemming!

For this specific version, I did finish the edges of the straps as well as the circle skirt. I think it all depends on your taste as well as the fabric. I've made a jersey version since this one, and I did not finish any edges of the jersey one.

Your dress looks lovely and using an unwanted sheet is a great idea.
Since first coming across the infinity dress idea Ive wondered if it could be made in a non-stretch fabric but Ive never gotten around to experimenting myself. I'd be more confident to make one now after seeing how yours turned out.
