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.
