    how much fabric?

    I am comissioning someone to sew a dress for me. It is short sleeved and about knee-length. My problem is I forgot to ask her how many yards of fabric I will need to buy to make the dress and I'm making the trip to this special fabric store and I can't get a hold of her to find out how much to buy.

    How many yards of fabric does it take to make a short sleeved, knee length dress?

    It depends on what size you wear, the style (full skirt or fitted), and the width of the fabric (usually 45" or 60").

    When you go to the fabric store, check out their patterns. Or if it's a really fancy store, stop by a JoAnns or Hancock on the way (my local fancy fabric store doesn't have ordinary patterns, yours might not either). Find a similar pattern, and check what the package says for your size.

    If all else fails, go overboard and buy three yards or more. You can always make a pillow or potholders or something with the extra fabric.
