I finally made an infinity dress! I remember this was all in the rage just a few years ago. I had a green bamboo/rayon jersey that is so soft, it begs to be made into a maxi dress. So I figured out a way and cut out an infinity maxi from the 3 yards I had. (The most helpful tutorial I used is here, the skirt is a quarter circle and I do not have a tube top underneath. I also gradually cut the strap so its thinner towards the end).
Of course, there are crazy amount of ways to wear this. My favorite way to wear is the above, except with both of the straps on one shoulder, so it looks like a one shoulder dress. It was hot that day so I didnt want to reconfigure my dress and stay on the deck for too long, but I am sure you can get the idea about how to wear this dress on google 🙂
The color of this fabric is bright olive from fabricmart (again), and I actually really love it! Hubby is conflicted about this dress: he doesnt love the color but likes how it looks like a greek dress and is oh-so-soft. What do you think?

Love the color on you, contrast of the dark fabric against your fairness (my gosh, Jue, how do you keep away the tan lines? I got out one day in a t-shirt and I have a t-shirt line), the cut of the fabric, the knot at the bottom, etc. I guess I love everything about it! =)
haha, i actually hardly go under the sun now… its just way too hot to be under the sun for over 10 minutes!
Oh wow… the color is gorgeous! I love how you styled it. I also have trouble getting the straps from looking too bulky in the midsection… tapering them out is an excellent idea!
yeah! For some reason the strapes looks so much skinnier from some other people, yet mine is still pretty thick after tapering. must be the fabric.
You look amazing! The dress is beautiful and so is the color. I am a huge fan of olive (or almost any shade of) green.
thank you thank you! i “discovered” that I love green recently only!
Great dress and it looks so comfortable! By the way, your daughter is ADORABLE and I love the doggy dress you made her! I am also amazed that you can make the sweaters and cardigans, such a cool tool you have!
😀 maybe you can pick one up next time when you visit US 😉
WOW!! you look so stunning and statuesque! I like everything about it, including the colour. Olive green is one of my favourites 🙂
i can see why! you look very good in olive!
Beautiful dress. I like the color as well as the pattern for this dress. And there is nothing better than a comfortable maxi dress in a knit fabric for hot summer days.
The colour looks amazing against your skin tone!
I love the pictures as well, so bright and earthy 🙂
Hi, I’m hoping to make my own out of a rayon fabric, and was wondering how important stretchiness was for you – did you feel the fabric lacked because it didn’t have a large % of polyester/lycra/etc in the blend? Thanks!
wooo!! I think it would be wonderful in rayon. The stretchiness add to comfort, but if you put in a zipper in your skirt part, it will be great!!
