Making Of The Tube Dress
This year I’m making more things for my dolls…
getting my creativity on as they say! So one of the first
things I’m making are tube dress. There are many types of
tube dress and tube wear but I am going to make one type
here today. This the first dress and it is the simplest dress
you can make. My inspiration for this dress came when I
bought the Liv windows. The mannequins have on a simple
accessories that make the outfit. So I plan to spend a little
time picking them out than sewing.
This outfit is so simple.
So let's make a simple no sew tube dress. Where would
you get such a thing? Let’s start at my favorite places…

They are brown, black and white striped and blue. (Sorry for
the dark background.) I have picked up a few fabric hair-
bands that are in a tube shape and doesn’t have a seam in
the back in a great color solid or print. If you can't find ones
without a seam, then you will have to make the seam the
back or side of the dress. Because these items are tubes,
they won’t require a lot of sewing. I know some of you will
want to sew to alter this dress for a more perfect fit or
more permanence and that is OK too. The bands I
purchased came with hair ties too and I will use
them if I can on the dress.
Here are the tubes!
I have chosen the strip tube so that you can see it well.
I am going to cut the seam that holds the two ends
of the tube together.

making the dress with a small child. It makes it easy for
them. I'm going to tuck the ends under at the top and the
bottom. It does give it a more finished look. Those of you
who are sewers, may want to sew the top and bottom under,
so feel free, but those of you who don't can simply tuck.
for a better fit, or belt it! I am going to belt it...and not just
any belt but I will use those hair ties that came with the
hairband. I used three black hair ties as a belt.
