Re: How much striped fabric for 19 dinette?
It's all about the pattern matching. The pattern has to match on all sides and ends. The cushions are box style so it's not like making a big sack. In order to maintain the boxiness (remember the foam is cut with straight edges not curved) there are more seams involved. Stripes are especially notorious when it comes to matching up where one piece meets another. Sometimes the striped fabric stretches when it's sewed therefore the stripes won't line up so make sure your striped fabric is appropriate for use as a seating upholstery.
In the furniture industry, it's not unusual to see striped upholstered products have to be marked down in price, often because the fabrics stripes don't meet up, spoiling the overall look. Cheap manufacturers only want to buy a minimal amount of material and then expect the upholsterer to work miracles with it.
If you don't want to spend so much for the extra material, then choose a solid or a blended pattern for the cushions. If you love the stripes then purchase a small amount to make accessories like throw cushions, bolsters or window treatments.
