I think it takes about 2 yards of 58" fabric to make a shirt. What if the stripes run selvedge to selvedge, but one wants a shirt where the stripes run vertical? Yes, I bought some fabric that looked and felt great in a swatch but it is in the wrong direction.

anyone?

Thanks

that is called a barre stripe.

you should be able to get the shirt made with out too much of a problem. that is if your shirtmaker cuts by hand.
a computer driven cutter may not be able to cut the shirt the correct way. it depends on the programming.
