You’ve probably seen Infinity dresses floating around the internet already… they’re super fun and versatile.
If you’re not familiar with the concept, it’s a bottom (usually a skirt) with very long straps attached to it that you can wrap around in a million different ways, shaping the top of your dress.
Judy took the idea to the next level, though. The pattern comes with a variety of bottoms and they pretty much cover you could possibly need for this style.
- Dress (knee or maxi)
- Romper (shorts or pants)
Pattern also includeds
- Optional pockets
- Optional bandeau
Infinity is drafted for 4-way stretch knits. Lightweight fabrics with good drape are best for this one.
I used rayon knit and opted for making the pants length with pockets and the bandeau.
I’m truly and utterly obsessed with these pants. I want to have ten thousand of them.
Let me show you a few ways I tied mine up!
Tube top and straps wrapped around the waist only.
A couple of things about the top.
- I didn’t add extra length to it as I should have, my side waist is longer than the pattern is drafted for. So if you make it accordingly to the pattern it might be a bit longer on you 😉
- I got so enthusiastic wrapping the ties for the other pictures that I forgot to add the top to the equation, so this is the only shot it’s in. 😂 With regular use, I’ll probably wear it most of the time.
This is a bit difficult to describe and explain how I tied it. But don’t worry! The pattern has a lot of videos showing you how to tie your Infinity in different ways. 😉
If you have any questions about a certain way I tied it, let me know. Meanwhile, I’ll just overload you with photos. 😄
These are a few ways I tied it before I got tired haha. But really, the sky is the limit!
Also, check the P4P blog for a few hacks and extra tips and tricks!
I want to make a bodysuit, but first I need a few pants as separates because, as I mentioned, it’s major love on my part!
Edited to add
I wasn’t kidding when I said I needed a bunch of these… here’s the first of many to come. 😄
The fabric is a rayon knit, super soft and with the perfect drape for this pattern. I’m obsessed with this print.
The top is the Tulip Tee, a free pattern, also from P4P. I made the basic option, cut on the banded line and just hemmed everything, including the neckline. It’s the perfect basic tee made a bit sleeker by eliminating the neckband.
