    i know the pattern calls for 3/4 yd. fabric A and 1/2 yd. fabric B. i accidentally got 1/2 yd. for fabric A and was wondering if anyone experienced that there was some give on the requirement numbers.

    i recently made the family reunion dress and the requirements seemed very liberal. soooo…i was hoping this might be the case for the shorts! thanks for any guidance!

    I recently cut the 2T from scraps,so it should be fine.

    I was not matching pattern repeats though.

    I find O+S give very safe fabric guides as a rule but better safe then sorry. The Apple Picking dress uses every little bit!

    thanks so much! good to know about the apple picking dress 🙂

    i’m really glad because i was thinking i got such a good deal on the black linen i purchased and didn’t feel like running out to get more. luckily there is not pattern on the linen so i think i’ll be totally fine.

    happy sewing!

    1/2 yd. for 2T shorts was plenty for both fabric A and B. granted i was using a plain linen so no pattern matching but it fit with room to spare.

    hope this will help someone in the future if they aren’t sure.
