 Fabric Conversions Charts

When using a commercial sewing pattern, use the following chart as a guide for
fabric widths not listed on the pattern. For example, if the pattern you are
using requires 1-1/8 yards (1.05 meters) of 54” (137 centimeters) wide fabric
but you are using 44” (112 centimeters) wide fabric, buy 1-3/8 yards (1.3 meters)
of the 44” (112 centimeters) fabric. Please note that the size and shape of certain pattern pieces may affect the amount of fabric required.
