Starting with a Dress Pattern (For example): Imagine you want just the dress from this pattern they labeled it (style A)
After you pick your pattern – flip it over and look at the suggested fabrics that this particular pattern will work with. And the pattern will also tell you what notions you will need like zippers, buttons, velcro, etc…
Then look at your particular size and how much fabric you will need.
Depending on your size: for example if we choose (size 16) cause it accomodates our measurements, you would need 2 and a 1/2 yards of fabric. And 5/8 of a yard of lining fabric.
If you have any questions about your pattern or measurements, etc… Contact me, I’d love to help you in any way I can.
