Wrap it, tie it, change it! The amazing and versatile Infinity Dress, by Forever 18 Inches, is now available for 18” dolls, with skirt choices available in a short and full length, and an option for using differing fabrics for the bodice and skirt for your own unique designer look. The dress itself is very simple: it’s formed by joining four rectangles of varying sizes together and sews together quickly. Like the “Big People” version, the straps have an infinite series of possibilities in the way they can be tied to form different looks—hence the name of the dress. The pattern also includes bonus craft instructions to make a pretty wrist corsage. The dress can be worn as a casual frock, a party dress, bridesmaid’s dress, or an elegant formal, depending on the fabric, length, and how the straps are tied. Make your own version, and you’ll have a blast playing with the straps and all their possibilities!

can't wait to sew this one up
I finished sewing my first Infinity Dress at midnight -- it's after 1 now, and I'm still playing with it and discovering new variations! I guess I'll have to make another for my granddaughter so that I can keep one here for myself... Oh, and the instructions were easy to follow. So glad I got this pattern.
I used the same fabric as you did in the cover and absolutely loved it! I love the versatility of it and it looks great on Buttercup (my renamed Caroline)! Very easy patter and I could see a beginner making it. Highly recommend this!
Experimenting with fabrics & length of ties to be able to make even more designs. This is a fun pattern once you understand how it goes together!
This has to be one of the fasting doll sewing projects I've ever made. I used a metallic fabric with a different color reverse side which really wasn't the best choice since some of the styling options would have both sides of the fabric showing, yet it still works. Since I do not own a serger to finish the edges, I will stick with fabrics that look good without being hemmed or overlock stitched. This really looks elegant despite the simplicity of the sewing. I did not have any problem understanding the instructions, but do agree that a fabric with two distinct colors or patterns to represent the right and wrong sides might add clarity to the photos accompanying the instructions.
