How much fabric do you need for your diy dress?
Using the chart below, you can figure out how much fabric you'll need for your size. It is calculated for a typical fabric width which is between 140 and 150 centimeters. Be sure to adjust the pieces so they will fit correctly if you are going to use a different width or design (such as stripes, for example).
Check your contraction!
Please read! You should check the fabric's contraction before cutting. It is recommended to iron steam raw materials at their maximum recommended temperature. This will ensure a true fit and won't shrink after the first wash. You can protect yourself from shrinkage by purchasing 5% more than you need.
