Infinite Possibilities; take 1

I believe that they called this item an infinity scarf because its maker chose to use an infinite amount of fabric.
Really. That's a scarf.
I really wanted to make this one of those kaftan dresses, or maybe a kimono. If neither of those worked, I could make it a shirt, a skirt, or change it back to a scarf. Infinite possibilities!
In theory, my kaftan thing (which is a lot like a big sack that you wear) worked just fine. What I didn't really consider was the clinginess of the material and how it would interact with a slip, seeing as it's sheer.
Looks pretty nice...until I start moving. It just doesn't hang right and it's pretty bunched in the back where the belt is trying to cinch my waist. I took a couple staged pictures, all the while knowing that this will just not do.
I'm considering taking it in or elasticizing the waist. I could try other slip options. I could also see how it works when hemmed up short and worn as a tunic.
Feel free to see more on my blog, Craft, Thrift, or Die.
