    Beautiful dress. What I like the most is that it can be worn day to night, depending on shoes and accessories.

    Fascinating! I really do get the “straight jacket” feeling", while seeing a good looking garment. You are very talented. I would love to (try to) recreate this dress.

      It’s simple a cap sleeve 2 piece knit dress with high neck, pull on no closure. The wrap pieces are full width of the 60" jersey cut at 3, 6, and 10 in widths with snap tape sewn at both ends.

    Cool, I like it a lot! And it was very interesting to find out that the infinity dress is from 1976. Great things live forever, right?
