  • Multiply the drapery rod width by 2.25, divide the answer by the fabric width, round the answer up to the nearest full number.

Calculate the drapery panel cut length:

  • Add 1/2” for folded back at the header, 8“ for a double folded bottom hem and 1” shrinkage allowance (Total 91/2”) to the finished drapery panel length.
  • Add one pattern repeat if pattern match is required.

Total fabric requirement:

  • Multiply the drapery panel cut length by the number of fabric widths needed. Convert the answer to yardage.


Rod width is 44“; finished drapery panel length is 72”. Fabric width is 54“ with 6” pattern repeat.

The total number of fabric widths needed is 44” x 2.25 ÷ 54 = 1.8, round up to 2. Each drapery panel will be made of one width of fabric.

The drapery cut length is 72” + 9 1/2” = 81 1/2”. Add the pattern repeat, 81 1/2“ + 6” = 87 1/2“.

The total fabric requirement is 87 1/2” x 2 ÷ 36 = 5 yards
