    Has anyone used 54″ fabric for this pattern? I will be making the size 4 and am wondering how much to buy. Thanks!

    It depends on which size. I can definitely get a size 2 out of one yard, minus the sleeves. I made a sleeveless size 6 in about 1 1/2 yds of AMH voile. If you need to save on fabric and are willing to sacrifice some of the fullness of the skirt, you could cut the front and back skirt as one piece using the full width of the fabric. You’ll only loose an inch or so in the larger sizes, but you could really save a lot of space. If you want to buy the absolute correct amount of fabric, lay out your pattern pieces and measure, leaving some room for shrinkage.
