Does anyone have a pattern for the Infinity/Convertible dress? I found the tuturial at rowena.typepad.com/rostitchery/infinity-dress.html, but I need something with more (exact) details and measurements. I’m not a super skilled seamstress.

I have this bookmarked at home. If no one else gives you anything, PM me and I’ll send it to you later. I had the exact problem and I made one. The best advice I can give: get the right material. I made 2 from the wrong material and they never looked right.

If you find the photobucket group for the dress someone has good directions on there!

Matte jersey is what the bought in stores convertible dresses are made of. I had a hard time finding it, but also never asked. I tried a non-stretchy fabric and one that was stretchy, but see through, so I doubled the straps which made me look pouchy when I wrapped myself in it.
Here’s my tips:
- If you can’t find matte jersey, look for something no see through and wraps without getting to thick.
- Look up how to make a circle skirt (I had no idea what it was and messed up my first skirt when it’s SO EASY)
- Listen and make the straps long
- Don’t make the belt (you know, the one seem you’re to make) very wide. It just flops over and looks funny. Max: 5 inches (at least that’s what I think.
Good luck and send me a pm to remind me for the website if you want it.

We’re converting a Vintage Vogue pattern into an infinity dress. It’s this one:
We’re basically making the dres as-is and making a fully boned waistline to help out my two girls, who are both on the curvy side, and just adding the long straps to it. We’re using a thin, stretch satin.
Just make sure the fabric has a 2-ways stretch, not a 4-way stretch.
