Yardage Conversions
Here's a handy conversion chart for yardages.  If your pattern calls for 2 yards of 60" width fabric, and you want to use a 45" width fabric, you would need to buy 2 3/4 yards of the 45" width fabric to have enough.  Note that you may need to buy more fabric if there is a nap or directional design.
