This pattern layout shows where the pieces should lie on the two basic widths of fabrics (45" or 55" (114 cm or 140 cm) in order to be cut in a way that wastes the least amount of fabric.
So, if you wanted to cut out a size 36 pattern in fabric that is 45" wide, you would follow the bottom layout in the above pic.
