Measurement instructions edited 6/14/09 Four knit rectangles + elastic + thread + sewing machine + 2 hours = one fabulous knit tube dress. Front views Back views That’s right. You can sew a fabulous knit tube dress in two hours. Fabric and notions: Approximately 2 yards of 60” wide knit fabric.The wrong side of the fabric will show with the tie variations, so keep that in mind when you choose your fabric. Thank you to the Anonymous (Jun) for asking for clarification on this step. Take your measurements: Measure around the fullest part of your bust. Cut your dress: Find a large flat surface to cut out your dress.Fold your fabric in half, wrong sides together, and lay on a large flat surface.I used the floor in my sewing room, much to the delight of my little helper Sophia, who promptly plopped herself on the fabric and refused to budget. Measure, mark and cut your rectangle. Cut your ties: Cut two rectangles that measure 6”(w) x 50” (l). Sew your dress: Done!
