I made this infinity dress as a toile for better fabric (silk jersey). I used some reminant fabric I bought online (it was called peacock?). I really like it and it’s super comfy. I did mess up a bit and didn’t make the strips wide enough on the sides. I used part of a how to and altered it to more my taste. See credit for link.
I added a waist band for more options. I did not hem anything. I made a circle skirt for the bottom with no seam. I wanted to make it longer, but I did not have enough fabric. I had to remember when cutting the fabric that it stretches and I needed to adjust my measurements to that. Now I just need to figure out how to tie it all the infinite ways.
I showed you so far my favorite ways to tie: strapless, high-waisted skirt, couple different fun and sexy asymmetrical versions, asian-ish inspired, keyhole, and different cross front versions.
