Cutting Guide: Yardage vs. Inches

Here's a little chart showing how many inches are in different yardage cuts. I found this chart on The Lost Apron and used Ana's measurements to make a chart of my own! Knowing how many inches are in different yardage cuts may help you decide how much fabric you need. 

This is especially helpful when you're at the cutting table and the sweet lady is waiting for you to give her a length to cut while you frantically try to measure out what you need in your head. Although, you may be like me and ask "Could you show me how much 1/2 a yard more is?" "Ok, could I see how much just a 1/4 yard more is?" "So sorry, could I see 1/2 a yard again?" And then after all that you just decide to get a whole yard extra, just in case. Haha. 

Let me know if you have any questions!
