As I mentioned on Wednesday, I got a bit swept up in the Memorial Day sales and bought some fabric over the internet. I didn't have a specific pattern in mind, and was kind of stymied over how much to buy. I thought that 3 yards was probably enough for most anything I'd want to make, but then I got nervous that I'd run out and (here's the confession part) I ended up buying 4 yards of each... Yikes!
So, how about you? How much fabric do you buy when you don't have a specific pattern in mind? Do you have rules of thumb for the general amount of fabric needed for shirts, dresses, skirts and pants?
