Style Sunday: The Infinity Dress
This has to be one of my favourite dresses of all time, having first found The Infinity Style Dress a few years ago, I checked out a number of different how-to guides before settling on this amazing online tutorial from SewLikeMyMom as my total favourite!
Having working it up in a couple of different colourways I thought that it was about time I looked about for some new shades to pick out for making another versions any parties and events that might be coming along this year. While searching about for hot colours for this season’s dresses, I was super happy to find that the infinity dress is popping up in bridal and special occasion stores the whole world over – how rad it that?! I totally love the collection over at TwoBirdsBridesmaid, with dresses starting from £215.
Yes, these frocks are fabulous for decking out a tribe of bridesmaids – each can tie and style her own dress to suit her unique look – but, it is also a great way to get through a season of parties and events on a budget! Now, no one likes to be that gal who has to wear the same dress to each and every wedding she is invited to. Well, this dress means that you don’t need to – I mean you can simply make up your own and tie it in a whole host of different ways to get the look that you want for each and every event, then all you need to do is pick out a few new accessories to give the gown a whole fresh look- now if that isn’t a whole lot of budget brilliance, then I don’t know what is! Whats more, for those that prefer to make garments from patterns rather than following a tutorial – this Style Sunday: The Infinity Dress is gonna be right up your street!

Here’s another cheeky little fashion tip – when it comes to packing your bags for your summer holidays, or even your honeymoon, space in the suitcase is always at a premium, but, working up a couple of these in a more causal style jersey print – perhaps one cut short and another full-length – will give you endless styling options for days on end…plus lots of space in the case for filling with duty free!
I don’t think that I’ll be happy until I have a whole wardrobe of these dresses, in every length, colour, print and pattern – and, you know what, I’m completely fine with that! What colour and style do you like best?
