Yardage for just the pants?

    I should have taken note when I made a set at Christmas. Does anyone know how much fabric I need to make just the pants in a 3t and a 4? Can I get away with 3/4 of main and 1/4 of contrast?

    It really depends on the width and whether the fabric has a direction.

    The smaller sizes are pretty slim…..

    I was looking at the sandbox, I know different pattern, but maybe you could get them out of just over 2 yds of main, it might be worth getting the patterns out and measuring to ckeck if you can get both pants pieces out of one width of 44″ fabric.

    I happen to know that for size 8, I need 1 1/4 yards of wider farbic, but 2 1/2 of narrower fabric. The size 8 is just too wide for 42″ fabric, so I would have to guess that the smaller sizes would fit. I did not use contrast either, so you might be fine with 3/4 of main. The only way to know for sure is to get out the pattern pieces and measure. I do wish the yardage was given separately on the envelope.
