How many metres square of fabric would it take to make a full length dress for a person 1.55 metres tall?

This is an approximation for a size 12 – to be on the safe side and give some spare fabric! Thanks!

Fabric is measured by linear meter and by width, never by the square meter. Without knowing the style of the dress it’s almost impossible to guess. The amount of fabric required will vary greatly depending on the style of the dress, the type of fabric selected, the width of the fabric and details of the dress such as pleats, linings, facings, sleeves, etc. The best way to ensure that you are getting the correct amount of fabric is to purchase a dress pattern and follow the guide for fabric amount on the envelope. It will tell how many linear meters to buy for each fabric width. If you are working from an hand drafted pattern, then lay the pattern out on a large table and place the pieces withing the constraints of a common fabric width, such as 115 cm across or 150 cm across and guesstimate the length you need.

For a semi full skirt sleeveless sheath style the roughest estimate I can give is 3.5 meters minimum of 115 cm width fabric and 2.75 meters minimum of 150 cm wide. A fuller skirt or more substantial bodice will require more.
