I'm not sure what your actual question here is. What kind of fabric to use in an infinity dress? I would recommend 4 way stretch with enough thickness that it's not see-thru, nor does every bulge show. That happens with really thin jerseys for example.

Probably bulges aren't an issue for a 20 year old. I just looked this dress up and it's really cool. It looks as if silk jersey wouldbe a great choice, whatever the age.

Are these still in style? I thought they went out a few years ago.

I have seen this dress come and go a few times. I suspect that if one has the figure for the Infinity Dress it would be in style. I should have been brave and worn it the first time I saw the McCalls pattern in the late 70's. Now I don't have the shape for it.
