How many yards will I need?

How many yards of fabric will I need to make a very simple shift dress? Emphasis on the VERY simple, like so:


I'm making myself a halloween costume, I've never made a dress before, and I can't find a pattern in my size. My measurements are 55-50-60. Any tips you can pass along relevant to the super-sized plus n00b sewer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I made a dress! From scraps and not from scratch. This is actually a patchwork of 3 different outfits. Hand-sewn, by the way, since I'm scared of sewing machines. See, during my christening it was foretold that before my 16th birthday I will prick my finger on a spindle in a spinning wheel and fall into a deep slumber -- Oh wait, that's not me. 

I've worn it once and I was uncomfortable and paranoid the whole time. I felt like I was in perpetual danger of coming apart by the seams!

bandana sewing with elastic band perhaps?
islands

I can't make a decision. I have a bandana.  and tying a granny square knot gives me a headache. Can anyone suggest a different closure that expands and contracts? 

I was thinking a hair elastic band.  Folding each end into the hair elastic and then sewing each end shut. But   I think that is too much pressure on a small elastic band.

What about a 5/8 inch wide piece of black elastic? if I still have any?  White elastic? Firm? gentle/sleepwear?

Or should I just give it up and make a bag out of the bandana?www.morsbags.com/ *
