How much fabric do you need for your DIY midi dress pattern?
In general, fabrics with widths between 140 and 150 cm are considered to meet the fabric requirements below. In some cases, pattern placement may need to be adjusted for fabrics of different widths and prints (striped, plaid, etc.). Plan ahead and buy enough fabric to avoid last-minute shopping trips.
Check your contraction!
The first step in preparing your fabric for cutting is to wash it. In addition to pre shrinkage, any excess color will be removed by doing this. After sewing, your garment remains true to size and won't shrink once washed
