Yardage Fabric Calculator-Drapes

For Standard Width Panels:
Finished length of curtains + 16 inches divided by 36 = number of yards required. Add 1 extra yard (or one vertical repeat of the fabric) per pair if using a large print fabric.

For example, if you wanted a pair of curtains that were 90" in length, then 90+16=106 divided by 36 = 2.94 which you would round up to 3 yards of fabric per curtain, 6 yards total for the pair.

If you were using a large print fabric and wanted the print to match up on each panel, then you would include an extra yard of your fabric for each pair of panels.  So in this case, you would order 7 yards of fabric. 

For Double Width Panels:
Double width requires 2 widths of material per panel.  Therefore, you would take the yardage required above and multiply it by it by 2.  In the example above, 3 yards of fabric were needed per panel.  Because 3 x 2= 6, we will now need 6 yards per panel at this width, or 12 yards for two double width panels.
