    By the Yard

    Sewing with fabrics that are only 36 inches wide is usually more expensive than using 45- or 54-inch fabric, even if the wider goods cost more per yard. Clothes cut to a much better advantage in wider fabrics and require so much less yardage that they are actually cheaper. Margaret Childs, Brigham Young University Department of Clothing and Textiles
