This post is aimed at guesstimating the fabric yardage/meters for some of the clothes you sew.
Some general facts about fabric – Fabric is usually measured by yards or meters. One yard is around 3 feet, which is about 91 cms.
One meter equals 1.09 yards or 39.4 inches. The width of the fabric (checkout the different types of fabric available ) is usually 35-36 inch, 44-45 inch, 54 inch and 58-60 inch.
Because fabric also comes several widths and your pattern envelope may only give you yardage requirements for two widths, you can refer to this guide to buy the correct amount for the width of the fabric.
