To Infinity, and Beyond!

Gosh, I couldn't resist that title.  Well, maybe I could have.  Maybe I just didn't want to! :)

Anyway.  My friend Su made this adorable dress recently called an Infinity Dress.  Instructions can be found here on Rowena's Stitching.  In its simplest form, it's four pieces: a donut of jersey, two long strips of jersey, and a waist band.  You lay them all together, sew around the waist, and you're done.  Tempting, right?  Su added a tube top for extra coverage.  (She also cut down on the bulk of the skirt.)  The straps and skirt are as long or short as you want them.

Here's where your part comes in, o my fabulous and fashion savvy readers: Could I pull this off with a fitted tee underneath?   There are a 101 ways to wear the long ties.

I've seen girls wear fitted tees under strapless dresses, and thought it looked sweet.  But...I'm not going to prom.  I'm going to church.  And I'm not a teenager anymore.  But it would be cute, and easy to make, and fun.

So.  That's the sound of MY brain tying in knots.  What's yours saying?

It can't hurt to make it! Then tell us if it works. *grin*

I think it will work if you look for a t-shirt that is made of a similar fabric and that has fitted sleeves. Could you just make a cap sleeve t-shirt to go with it?

It can't hurt to try it, I'm guessing if it doesn't work the fabric could be used for another project.

And I love her shoes! Very cute...I have some wrap around Indian skirts that allow you to configure them differently; however, I'm just a wee bit pudgy to make them look good. If I had Su's figure, I think I could pull off just about anything...must work out now. ;) Time to get back to my prebaby body.
