Am I the only one wondering what width is being talked about here. It makes a huge difference.
From Martha Stewart here:
The most common width for upholstery fabric today in the United States is 54 inches; however, 48-inch-wide fabric is found both here and in Great Britain, and 40- and 42-inch widths are standard for many imported fabrics, like Indian silks. Other fabrics, such as garment textiles (less often used in upholstery), may be wider: Oxford cloth and gingham are frequently sold in 60- and 72-inch widths. If you can, choose 54-inch-wide fabric. It produces the least cutting waste, and upholsterers’ yardage estimates assume this width.
From Ask.com here:
Standard bolts of fabric vary in width depending on the type of fabric. Cotton bolts are usually 42 inches and wool bolts, 60 inches. Standard upholstery fabric bolts are 54 inches wide.
