Description

I was inspired yesturday by rebexy’s convertible dress I had seen these dresses before but never knew how simple they are to make. Rebexy had kindly linked to Rostichery’s infinity dress and also to scriptandserif’s How to. I had a ton of jersey so decided to make one and an hour later I had a new dress. My husband is currently working nights and was snoozing, when he woke up I was wearing the dress, he asked “have you just made that? Have a missed a day!!” I just need to practise tying it now. I think I will end up making a lot of these dresses, they are so versatile, I still can’t believe how easy it was to make.

    I’m glad this dress is back, I don’t why it ever left. This was out in 1974 and I’ve been in love with it ever since. My father made it for me and my mom out of Qiana (fabric no longer exist). It was so much fun to wear. Now its back! Thank you who ever brought it back!
