Amount of fabric needed.

Got a couple of questions regarding the amount of fabric. I'm getting the u-dinette and the build sheet indicates 8.9 yds. I bought 10 yds but started thinking about the 12 or18" fill board with cushion. Do I have enough? Also what constitutes a repeating pattern which doubles the amount of fabric? I have a little triangular pattern in the fabric which is same color as fabric itself. My wife said that doesn't constitute repeating in her opinion but now I wonder.

When I purchased the fabric for Ten Forward, in the description on the seller's website it told me the pattern repeated every 12 inches. And it does.

Thanks Donna. We wouldn't qualify as repeating if that's the case.

Shoot a picture of the fabric and send it to Escape for clarification as to how much fabric you need.

Is the fabric amount listed on the build sheet enough for both sides of the cushions? I definitely want reversible cushions so that there can be a dog side and a clean side!

I was assuming that was the case.
Good question.

No, the amount listed is with the vinyl back. A full wrap adds about 50% to the required yardage.

My idea of the dog side is the vinyl side. The vinyl can also be used to put large wet items on to dry. Like wet dogs!

I just handed off to ETI 21 yards of fabric. I know it's more than what they needed, but it's what I had. I'm getting the u-dinette and getting the same fabric on both sides as I didn't see any reason to have vinyl (don't have dogs, we're not swimmers and if we're wet, we're certainly not sitting down until we've dried off and changed). Plus, we're getting two filler boards, which requires a yard each.

I had a roll of 20 yards which was more than enough, but I also took up the one yard sample I purchased off ebay, just in case they needed it. I figured it was better they have extra than not enough. And I'll get back whatever they don't use.

It's a solid (more or less) pattern that doesn't have any repeating components to it.

Edit: for a full wrap, you basically double what's listed on their site.

FYI:

We did a full wrap on the upholstery - no vinyl. And we had the U-shaped dinette. According to the build sheet, we needed 17 yards of fabric, because the stripes repeat, and we wanted fabric on all sides. Long story short: we wound up with at least 7 yards of extra fabric. I think they err WAY on the side of caution to make sure they always have enough.

So far, we've been able to make several throw pillows with some of the left over fabric though, so that's good.
