    I didn't know that! Doesn't it get confusing using both? Do you sew 1/4 inch seams or .6 cm. seams?

    I know one meter is about 39" so I would assume 1 1/4 meters. It's early here so hopefully my math is good

    Fabric.com always lists widths and it shows that this one is 44-inches. Hope that helps.

    The WOF usually is 42-44" wide, with the fabric folded in half as it comes off the bolt. I'll let you figure out the metric. JCY

    Width of the fabric

    Hello !

    just a basic question : when the fabric is sold per yard, what is its usual width ?
    In France, it can be 0.9m, 1.2m, 1.5m...

    In particular, I'm interested on this one :

    Thanks for your help !
