My girls wore the Convertible Dress from VS, and it was in that spandex-y fabric, the sheen made it a little more dressy I thought. They really liked their dresses, and one of my girls even bought another one in another color to wear to another wedding as a guest!

I personally am not a fan of either of those fabrics, I think Jersey/ spandex mix are just a bit too clingy and unforgiving in my opinion. I generally avoid those fabrics because I dont feel comfortable wearing them.

I wore the spandex one to a wedding last night.  I got compliments galore–I looked great and it was comfortable and swishy and fun to wear and fun to dance in.  

I did have to spend time/effort/money regarding undergarments on top.  To be frank–my nipples were clearly visible, even when I was not cold, under that fabric.  The configurations I liked the most tended to be backless and/or low cut so a bra was hard to find.  I ended up with the silicone nipple flowers–they can be reused up to 6 times.  Make sure you follow the directions–wash and dry the boobies right before applying and don’t use lotion or those things will flop right off.  

I made one in jersey over the summer–I like it but the raw edges roll up like jersey tends to do and it looks less dressy than the other one.

I’m having a friend make my dresses and am looking for the right fabric.    I definitely want a thick poly/spandex blend, but it’s tough to find one that’s thick enough…

Im doing something very similar to the infinity dress its a pattern from burda and it uses a crepe or other shier fabric as a wrap which I found helps dress it up a little.
