Mocha Convertible Maxi

Added Jan 12, 2011

Qld, Australia






Worn on my sis-in-law’s engagement party, this convertible maxi is made of soft and silky knit with a very good drape.

Compared to the “infinity dress” to which it is based, I added a bodice band with a strap holder as I cannot bear not wearing bra underneath my clothes. Thus, I called it convertible instead of infinity as the band on top stops me from doing some of the other styles .

Photos of me actually wearing it are yet to be compiled and posted.

    It is very elegant! I was thinking about doing something similar for my prom, so it’s wonderful to see it all made up! Hope to see your pictures soon :)

      thank you, redrosesews…

      I’ll try to post a photo of me wearing the dress (once I get a chance to compile them)…

    love the addition, will have to try that sometime. I have made three convertable dresses, two in the usual way and one with a waist added, but below the straps, so they behave as normal. great job!

      I had to ponder a long time on how I can create a version of this infinity dress that would be suitable for my “conservative” taste… this is the best that I can think of.

      Thanks for the comment.
