I am Isabel and I am an addict--- an INFINITY DRESS addict.
The concept of an infinity dress has been around for a long time but fashion-wise has not been heralded as the next best thing. And I for one wonder why?
This dress -- also called a convertible dress-- is one piece made out of stretch material that you can wind around your body in numerous configurations that it is never looks the same twice!
I first came upon it during a wedding when a friend wore it thought "what a fantastic idea!". This was years ago and I didn't realize the usefulness of it until I was staring at my wardrobe looking for something formal to wear -- one that I had not worn more than 5x.
Now that induction season is here it would mean numerous formal events and the same guests --meaning I have to either buy many gowns or be inventive so as not to be seen wearing the same thing over and over again.
Luckily I think the infinity dress has made a comeback and you can purchase one for yourself online. But for someone like me who lives in the province this is a very costly option. I have also chanced upon DIY blogs that detail how you can make your own convertible dress for roughly 6 yards of stretch cloth.
A few weeks ago I tried making one for myself. I found out that is deceptively easy to make, even for someone such as myself who doesn't know to sew professionally.
All you really need are 3 measurements:
3. Skirt Length
And a tutorial. Here are my sources:
1. Sew like my mom
2. See Cate Create
Below are my fumbling attempts at making and wrapping the dress around my body:
