    FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: The following table outlines the requirements based on 110cm (44") material.

    Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional textiles. I recommend you cut out each piece and lay them down on a flat surface to help estimate how much material is required for directional fibres. (2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage and buy a little extra.  (3) Also, it's wise to pre-wash your textiles, in particular rayon.
