Infinity Dress

My BFF is getting married in August. She decided on infinity dresses for the bridesmaids, so I made a sample one this evening. It was pretty whipped together, so I'll adjust a few things on the next go round, but I'm pretty happy with what I've got so far. Excuse the terrible pics, I'm awful at self portraits and the dress really wouldn't have been as flattering on DH.

They are so insanely easy. I made it with both kids underfoot in less than an hour. I only bought 4 yards of fabric because I was being cheap, so my straps only ended up about 80 inches or so which plenty long enough for me and I'm not a skinny girl. I wanted the front to have a little more coverage, so I did 14 inch wide straps and gathered them a little at bottoms before attaching them to the skirt. I also made a matching tube top for it.

I loosely followed this tutorial.
