Convert yardage into Leather footage.
Leather is measured in square feet, but fabric is measured in yards.
The following converting factors are used to convert yardage into square feet:
36" wide fabric: 9
45" wider fabric: 11
54" wide fabric: 13
If your pattern calls for 3 yards of 45" wide fabric, multiply 3x11, then add 15% for cutting loss: 3X11=33sq ft, add 15% or 5 sq ft:
33 +15%= 38 sq ft of leather.
We use this conversion to figure out how much leather will be needed for any given project such as making a custom skirt.
