We are using a Vintage Vogue pattern and altering the straps to make infinity dresses for my BMs. We are using this pattern:

All you have to do is use the piece for the top and extend the strap to 1 1/2 times the girls height. We are making mine out of black, stretch satin. All you need is a fabric with a 2-way stretch. Jersey would work. You can get it off of Hancock Fabrics’ website, it’s around 6.99/yd.

I am not sure what you feel comfortable spending – – there are several of those dresses available on Etsy. Is that a route you’re interested in?

I wanted this exact style for my BMs but I had such problems trying to find them!! I’d find ones that were affordable (like Victoria’s Secret) but they didn’t have my color. Then I’d find my color but they were waaaay too expensive.

I wish I had thought about what zippylef is doing!!!

@Aimee_Surprenant: Don’t know what you’re looking to spend but you could put an alchemy request into ETSY and see what kinds of offers you get.  Then you could get some thing less poofy and more the look you’re actually going for.  Saves you the legwork (and I’d trust there abilities to sew much better than my own – don’t know what experience you have with making clothes though).
