re-upholstery yardage help
Using the picture below as inspiration, DD is recovering 2 wing chairs, solid fabric on the interior and cushion, and a pattern on the exterior. The exterior fabric has a 9" horizontal repeat and an 8 1/8" vertical repeat. It is 54" wide.
According to all the yardage charts I can find, the chairs will each take a 6 yards of fabric IF I were doing each chair in solid fabric.
Can anyone give me a idea of how much solid fabric and how much print fabric I should buy for each chair? I would wait to ask the upholsterer, but the fabric outlet will be closed all next week and today is the only day I can go get the fabric for her.
