An infinity dress guide, which even a blond like me can understand!
As I was browsing through the internet I stumbled upon the infinity dress, a dress that has an infinite different ways to wear it. While browsing through all of the different ways I could wear it, I found a few I really liked! I was hooked!
I started looking for patterns online, found some too! Unfortunate for me, all of those patterns were intended for small chest skinny girls, who can wear this dress open backed and bra-less, I cannot. I had no choice but to replan the dress patterns to fit my bra + modesty requirements.
Me, my mother and her superb sewing skills started this project together. We didn’t get mach salvation from the guides online, so we recalculated the Measurements as we saw fit, with a lot of try and error (which we will try to spare you).
And this is the story of how this guide was born!
Step 1: the fabric
What fabric should I buy?
Flexible and heavy (I recommend some combination of Tricot – Lycra)
How mach fabric should I buy?
The fabric should be 4m long and 1.5m wide (1.5m is the standard)
The length of the skirt is determent by the width of the fabric, the rest of the fabric is used for the straps, anyone who is taller or wider and want more then 2.5m straps (not recommended!) should buy more fabric accordingly.
Note: from the excess fabric marked in the layout as X I sewed a tights pants.
