    I have been told that one needs 2.25 yards of 60" fabric for a shirt. How much is needed if the width is 45" and 36 inch. Anyone?[​IMG]

    Let's say I had two separate lengths of the same (solid color) cloth, each 60" by 40" - could a shirt be made from them, or would it need to be one continuous length of cloth?

    Yeah, just a broadcloth.

    Thanks.

    Assuming they are from the same dye lot. [​IMG]

    LALALALA I'M NOT LISTENING LALALALA My plan is flawless, and I'll not have logic interjected to foil it. [​IMG]
