The fabric amounts given in our sewing pattern instructions and cutting-out layout only refer to the original fabric. If you purchase a fabric that is the exact equivalent of the original, then you can rely on the same cutting-out layout. However, your fabric requirements and layout can vary considerably if you choose fabric in a different width or with large patterns, checks or stripes. In that case, first calculate the amount of fabric you need before purchasing!
Tip: It’s easiest if you do a trial run: fold a bed sheet to the required width, place on all the pattern pieces, remembering to take the grain line into consideration, and then measure how much fabric you will require.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
