How much fabric do you need for your diy skirt?
The table below shows the amount of fabric needed for each size, and you must keep in mind that it is calculated for fabrics with a useful width of 150 cm. Pattern placement will need to be redone on fabrics with different widths and different designs (stripes, plaids, etc.)
Check your contraction!
Easily check raw material for contraction by ironing it at its maximum recommended temperature. Putting the fabric through this process will cause it to contract, giving you a better idea of what it will look like once it has been sewn into a garment. Your finished garment will retain its original size after washing, and won't shrink. Don't let any nasty surprises catch you off guard by ironing your fabric before you start cutting.
