## 6 ft Rectangular Table

For a 6 ft rectangular table, you will need a tablecloth that is at least 72 inches wide and 144 inches long. This tablecloth size will allow you to have a 15-inch drop on all sides of the table.

### Tablecloth Length

To find the right tablecloth length for a 6 ft rectangular table, start by measuring the width and length of your table. Then, add twice the width to the length to get the total requestable drop. For example, if your table is 30 inches wide by 72 inches long, you would need a tablecloth that is 120 inches long. The finished drop (the part of the tablecloth that hangs over the edge of the table) should be about 18-24 inches.

### Tablecloth Width

To determine the width of fabric you need, add the length and width of the table, then add 10″. For example, a 6′ rectangular table would need a cloth that is 6’6″ wide.

If you’re making a fitted tablecloth with gathered fabric on the sides, you’ll need additional fabric to accommodate the gather. To calculate this, multiply the length of the table by 2.5. For example, if you have a 6′ rectangular table, you’ll need 15′ of fabric for the length (6 x 2.5 = 15).
