Well, I honestly didn't know these infinity dresses were a "thing" but I guess I do now!
I can see why they make a popular choice for bridesmaids dresses as everyone can have their own look and yet remain uniform.
This pattern is pretty new and I bought it on sale via Burda's website. I was intrigued by how it worked and it's much simpler than you would think!
It does take a LOT of yardage (6.5, though I recommend 7 with seam allowances). The pattern wants you to use a medium weight jersey but honestly, the lighter the better if you ask me!
My fabric is from Fabric.com (as always!) and is a super soft double-brushed knit.
I knew instantly I wanted a print for this dress so I set off to find a nice printed knit.
I only have 4 examples of tying this dress but there are countless ways of doing it!
The final way we tied it for photos ended up being maybe one of my favorite looks.
I would have had this done quicker but my ass had to go ahead and get food poisoning and feel unwell for almost 3 frigging weeks! I never get sick so that illness really got me good.
We're set to move into our *new house* in Grand Rapids, MI soon so I'm not sure how many more projects will be able to be completed before all of that.
We had many choices of where to move but ultimately we picked Grand Rapids because the houses were affordable, it's a HUGE art city (look up Art Prize which happens in the fall every year), it's close enough to where me and Patrick grew up even though only his family is in the area. I have a lot of friends nearby from high school still which is pretty nice. And, if we so felt like it, Chicago is only an Amtrak ride away!
Weirdly, I don't really miss Chicago. I spent almost 15 years there and I felt it was time to move on. I felt like I exhausted all of the opportunities that were out there for me personally and just wanted a calmer place to live.
I've always wanted to own a house and I saved almost the entire time I was in Chicago for it! Grand Rapids still has good cultural foods if you know where to look and it's a growing city.
I definitely will have a nice sewing space downstairs and I can't wait to expand my creativity to redoing house items.
We plan on having a colorful, artsy home as Patrick also loves color and creativity. So this will be exciting!
