This chart contains approximate yields and is based on non-stretchy fabrics. All figures are based on piece goods of 10 yards or more.

This chart is valid for standard fabrics such as cotton, poly-cotton and non-stretch polyester. For satin fabric or very stretchy fabrics, subtract 10% from the yields in the chart.

Approximate yields for non-stretching fabric

Straight Binding Yield
(Width of fabric in inches minus 2″) divided by Size to be cut.

if the width of fabric is 58″ and the Size cut is 1 5/8″
Yield = (58-2)/1.625 = 34

Across Tubular Yield
(Tubular width of fabric in inches x 2) divided by Size to be cut

If the width of fabric is 30″ tubular and Size cut is 2 1/4″
Yield = (30×2)/2.25 = 26

Across Open Yield
Use the bias chart and subtract 10% from the given yield.

If the width of fabric is 60″ and Size cut is 1 1/8″
Bias yield according to bias chart is 49
Across Open yield is 49 minus 10% = 44

Use this chart to determine approximate size to be cut for other products.
