Looking for a dress that gives you more bang for your buck? Try sewing yourself up a convertible dress! Not only is this style all the rage in Hollywood at the moment, but it also allows the wearer to change the look of their outfit just by altering the ties. There are several tutorials for making this frock including Rostitichery’s Infinity Dress and BurdaStyle’s own scriptandserif. Dresses not your style? Try the convertible dresses’ sister tute, the convertible shirt!

      Did you sew this or buy it? I need a tutorial on how to sew this. Has anyone successfully completed this one in the middle?

    Yeah, I also got a bit curios about the middle one.

    Here’s the website: http://one-dress.ning.com/

    It has quite a lot of pictures. There’s a better one of the dress untied. But unfortunately the dress is just for sale.

    But at least I can speculate about how it’s done. Some sort of circle(s) with a seam over the shoulders? Or a rectangle with a hole for the head who gets broader as well as more circular in the edges? And several holes to tie the band trough?

    Oh I love the little blue dress in the middle! I’ll definitely try to do this. When you click on the first link you can see what I looks like not being tied. I think this will not be hard to make (or at least I hope so). But now that summer has finally arrived here in Germany (and will hopefully stay) this dress seems to be a welcome change for the dresses you see here…

    The infinity dress from rostitchery’s tute was actually the first garment I ever finished successfully and I still love it, because 1. there’s nothing as comfy (pretty at the same time) as a jersey dress, 2. it’s quick and easy to sew up, and 3. you can wear it differently every day! Does anyone have an idea how to create a dress like the one in the middle?
