    I’m curious how comfortable this is to wear in “real life”… I’m thinking that someone would be constantly fiddling with the layers to keep everything in place, especially if you aren’t rail thin or a not so flat stomach.

    Thanks!

      The many test I made were great. You are tying up 2way stretch and once secure, it didn’t move at all. Some looks are better than others on that front.

    Thank you all @liora and Ghainskom I got the pattern on ebay years ago. @ milnay the price seems to have gone up quite steeply and @peaches2218 I did post a picture of that amazing pattern piece on my blog, go to my archives page and click on the pattern picture, you’ll see it.

    I’m really curious about the shape of these pattern pieces. I really like the first style on the left.

    I’ve been looking for the pattern all morning. I found one site who sells it, but unfortunately don’t ship to Australia. The site is: http://sheiladeessewvintage.ecrater.com/p/10568095/mccalls-5360-sewing-pattern-the-infinite

    If you’re in the same boat as me, I found this tutorial for something similar (though the pattern and construction is completely different). http://sewlikemymom.com/little-red-infinity-dress-tutorial/
