She has requested to bring a topic on fabric requirement. So here we are going to explain how much fabric you need to design your different type of dresses.
In market, the fabric is available in 36" inches or 44" inches width-wise, mostly 36" width fabric is good but if you got 44" width fabric then there will be difference of one fourth meter.
