I found the best youtube video the other day and it inspired me to create an Infinity style dress.
This is the dress that you can style so many different ways making it seem like a different dress each time. And the best part, it took me like 1 hour to make it!
Hopefully the video loads for you, if not click here.
Anyhoo here are the steps I took as I adjusted it slightly for the material I was using. As to what material I used, pfft! No idea, it was in my cupboard for a few years haha.
I would recommend a jersey, something with a nice stretch and thick enough so you aren't high beaming through the top ^_^
You will need:
Material, Scissors, Pins & Sewing Machine
I cut my material into a basic rectangle - doubled over, about 70cm / 80cm
Pin both pieces together and sew along the sides you have pinned.
Will look like this when you put it on
Still inside out pin the top section down. This is where you will thread your elastic for your waist.
Sew this down, leaving enough room for the elastic
Don't forget to leave a gap!
Now measure your waist, or where you would like the skirt to sit. Mark the join with a pen
Pin the end of your elastic to help you thread it through the material
Stitch this together and sew up the gap.
Skirt section done!!
Now taking a length of material about the width of your torso, sew this onto the top of the skirt and cut it down the middle to create two parts.
(here is where I changed it - I doubled the material and made two panels which I sewed onto the skirt)
Once sewn you are all done!
Time to start trying out those styles :)
Hope you enjoy!
If you make one also, please let me know how you go with it, would love to see some pics :)
