Good Day Everyone!
Looking for a dress that is within your budget this holiday season? or you have a Dinner and Dance party coming up and don’t know what dress you should wear?.
I bet this is one of the cheapest choice and a must have. This does not require professional sewing machine nor should be an expert in sewing. I think anyone can do this.
You need the following:
Fabric of your choice. Here I used stretchable fabric.
(For the strips, choose a fabric that does not have so much difference between the wrong and right sides.)
needle and thread
and a little patience
The first small rectangle is the tube. The second rectangle is the skirt. Yes, we are going to make a Tube dress but we will put 2 wide strips of fabric at the front to make “infinity dress”. It is called “infinity dress” because you can do a lot of styles just for one design.
First rectangle: Tube
Fold the fabric in half. If you have a tube blouse, just put on top of the fabric then cut. Leave 1/2 inch allowance for the seam. Sew the top seam then sew the sides together. Now, you have a tube.
Another way is to wrap the fabric around your bust. Check for the tightness and mark where you want to cut it, leaving 1/2 inch allowance for the seam.
Second Rectangle: Skirt
Measure how long you want your skirt and whatever the measurement of your tube just times 2 for the width. Sew the bottom seam then sew the sides together.
Another way is to wrap the fabric around your waist and see how tight or loose you want your skirt to be.
2 long Strips:
9 inches wide (you can widen the strips based on your breast size) and 60 inches long (you can make it longer based on your build)
Step 1: Pin the 2 strips to the tube. Wrong sides of the strips facing the right side of the tube then sew the strips. The distance between the two strips is 1 inch. The strips should be in line with your breast. Just make an eyeball.
Step. 2: Reverse the skirt and insert to the tube. Right sides facing each other. Pin around the tube and then sew. I used the zigzag stitch or better yet if you have overlocker machine, I suggest you use it. It will be easier.
The result should look like this…
