How Many Yards In 1 Inch – If you’re math-challenged like me, you should have an idea about sewing clothes. This post is meant to give you an estimate of the fabric size for some of the garments you will be sewing.
If you are buying patterns to sew your own clothes, you don’t need to read this article unless you remember to read the pattern instructions before buying the fabric. If you are making your own sewing patterns, you will need to calculate how much yarn you will need to complete the garment.

Another very important thing is to get your body measurements before buying the fabric. Check out this guide and learn how to read a measuring tape to get your body measurements correctly (the dress should be adjusted).

Some general facts about fabric – Fabric is usually measured in yards or meters. A yard is about 3 feet, about 90 cm.
One meter is equal to 1.09 yards or 39.4 inches. The width of the fabric (see different types of fabric) is usually 35-36 inches, 44-45 inches, 54 inches and 58-60 inches, 72 inches. There is also a fabric that is about 110 inches wide, but it is not common in stores (at least where I shop).
Trousers/trousers are mostly available in 58-60 inch widths. Sewing fabrics are usually 36 inches or 44 inches
You can read more about this and the formulas you can use to convert the metric system of measurements to the imperial system and to convert the imperial system to metric in this article “Measurements per yard of fabric”.

This estimate does not apply to tops and dresses with panels and when sewing one sided prints or fabric with an undercut or cutting the fabric larger or matching prints/patterns.
Sewing dresses with printed/patterned fabric requires more yardage compared to prints. When making clothes with plain clothes, the thickness of the main garment and the main material will be the same. But with a patterned fabric there can be a bumpy pattern and you need to mix it properly to get more patterned fabric than plain fabric.
Here are some tips for cutting and sewing printed fabric. You may need extra yardage if you want a specific print on one side of your garment. For this, making paper patterns and then calculating the yardage is the way to go. I learned that when sewing checks you need to buy at least 25% extra to fit the seams.
For the average man, you will need about 2 meters (2.18 yards) to make a blazer/jacket. For a long shirt, you will need about 2.75 meters (3 yards) of fabric that is 45 inches wide.

For men’s pants/trousers, the required yardage is as follows (as determined by the menswear tailor):
If you have 58 inches of fabric, you can make 1.30 meters of pants. For a tall man, you should buy 1.40 meters. If you have a single width fabric, you will need to buy 2 meters and 30 cm of middle man.
If the person making the pants has a belly, this should be taken into account – 1/3 of the hip circumference should be extra.
If you have a fabric that is 36 inches wide, you will need 2.20 meters to sew a formal shirt.

If you have 58 inches of wide fabric, you can make a shirt with 1.40 -1.50 meters of fabric.
A very flaming garment (wedding gowns, long gowns, etc.) needs about 6 meters. (and about 5.5 meters of extra fabric for the lining). If you have long sleeves, add an extra half meter. This will give you a rounded edge to the shirt.
If you need a yoke / jacket, buy 1.5 meters of separate fabric for the jacket and sleeves and only 5 meters for the skirt part.
T-shirts usually range in length from 25 inches in the smallest size to 29 inches in the plus size. I doubled the length and added an extra 1/4 meter. 1 1/4 yards of 60-inch knit fabric makes a 24-inch long t-shirt.
Long Range Shooting
For a knee length shirt with half sleeves I usually buy 2 meters of fabric (2 1/4 yards).
A-line dress – twice the length of the dress + 1/4 meter (with enough flare in the fabric). Sleeves, collars and other decorations should be considered.
2 Cup length + 2 Skirt length (from waist) + Hem and seam + sleeve + hem and seam. This is usually about 3 feet of floor length blanket if 45 inch wide fabric is used.
Queen’s dress with flare – twice the length of the dress + 1/2 meter / 3/4 meter

For sleeves longer than the elbow, for sleeves of 3/4 meter – 1 additional meter. If you are designing a raglan sleeve, consider the length from the shoulder. Look for a raglan sleeve pattern or a raglan sleeve pattern and plan accordingly
The fabric needed to make the skirts depends more on the flare and then on the width of the fabric you have on hand. A 44 inch wide fabric can fit both the front and back panels of a straight skirt at the same length, but a hem skirt can fit 10 inches wide.
Adults need about 3 meters to make a long fringed/gathered skirt. A medium length cocoon skirt can be made in about 2 1/8 yards
To get a full skirt (umbrella skirt) with a large flare, you will need about 4.5 meters of fabric 42 inches wide. At 3.5 meters you can sew a flared skirt, but with a small flare

If you make a hem, the minimum width of the dress should be equal to – 3.14 divided by the circumference of the waist + 2-3 inches of height required for the skirt. Take this measurement as X. The length of the fabric required is the X measurement multiplied by 2
For example, if my waist circumference is 30 Divide this by 3.14 and I get 9.5. Add 32 inches, the length I want for the hem, plus 2 inches of seam allowance and hem. So 44 inches wide I need to cut the edge of the circle (that’s the X). The length of the fabric will be 44 inches * 2 = 88 inches, which is 2.25 meters.
For a fitted skirt the yardage will depend on your fullness – Usually doubling the waist measurement will give you enough fullness for the skirt. So, if your waist circumference is 30 inches, if you have a 60 inch wide fabric, you will only need one length; moreover you need to mix the fabric
About 3 – 3 1/4 meters for the skirt and the same for the lining. Despite this yardage, a large full skirt needs fabric knots so that the plain knit fabrics come out. You can try a tutorial on how to make a full fabric skirt.
Converting Yards To Meters
Straight skirts can be sewn on 1.25 meters of fabric if you have a 60 inch wide fabric. As I said, it depends on the width of the fabric
32″ * 82″; 45 inches * 67 inches; Scarves can be made in different sizes; You can cut small pieces of fabric to make the neck.
A yard of fabric can easily be made into an infinity scarf (See the post on 20 ways to make an infinity scarf). A height of about 65-70 inches is fine for most women.
A typical Indian dupatta/scarf (over scarf) is about 32-37 inches wide and 90 inches long.

Very thin scarves about 5-8 inches in diameter are also around. A bandana is a square piece of cloth that is 18 to 27 inches in size. See the post on how to make a bandana.
To convert inches to millimeters multiply by 25.4 inches to inches multiply by 2.54 inches to meters -. multiply by 0254 yards per centimeter – multiply by 91.44 yards per meter – multiply by .9144
Length = You need to add the length of the mattress top, then add the pillow and down
You can make pillows up to 20″ x 40″ from about 1.15 meters of fabric (about 1 1/4 yards)

Hi, I love sewing, fabric, fashion, decorating, making simple DIY projects and writing about them. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you find any error here, please mention it in the comments. When starting a sewing project, the first question you need to answer is how much fabric you need. You need to match your project with the correct amount of fabric measured in units. So how much is a yard of fabric?
When I first visited an American fabric store from Canada, I was familiar with the metric system.
How many yards are in an inch, how many yards in one inch, how many yards in a, how many miles in yards, how many yards in feet, how many meters in yards, how many yards are in one inch, how many yards in a ton, how many yards in, how many yards in furlong, how many ft in yards, how many yards in foot
