Infinity Dress


The infinity dress has been around for a long time and I’ve seen several different tutorials that explain how to make it. The only reasons stopping me from making this dress was the large amount of fabric required…and a few confusing details. Luckily, I stumbled upon yet another tutorial that gave extra tips and tricks to making this dress. Although I wanted to have all my projects be reconstructions or made from items I own, I decided to go and buy fabric to make this dress.

In essence, the dress is a banded circle skirt with two extremely long straps that can be wrapped however you wish. As the straps are long and thin, the same long piece of fabric can make straps for at least 2 of these dresses. This week, I made my mom’s dress.


To me, this dress is like the epitome of simplicity and sustainability. It can be made rather easily [once deciphered] and will be worn for years to come. For those who worry about wearing the same dress twice, this one can be manipulated to be different each time.

Le Sac Dress…Shirt

I made a Le Sac dress from American Apparel after seeing several different tutorials.

I actually made it a while ago, but never wore it because I realized that it wasn’t wide enough or long enough to be worn in the several ways possible.

Since I would never wear it as a dress, I decided to make it a shirt. I cut off some length and undid a few seams so the edges would end in a slit. I also decided to make them uneven so that the front length would be a bit shorter than the back.

I wore this to my friend Melinda’s 21st birthday party at a greek restaurant full of napkin-throwing and plate-smashing. :]

[I forgot to take a picture of the whole thing, but at least you can see how I wrapped the straps and tucked in the edges]
