The pattern instructions state that you need 2 1/8 yards of fabric for the exterior to make sizes large and x-large but I managed to cut out everything for the sleeveless version from one metre of fabric. I made sure that I placed all the pattern pieces as close together as possible and once I'd cut the main pieces I refolded the rest of the fabric to be able to cut all the facings from the left overs. So I'm going to get the top I want from the expensive fabric I like, but for a fraction of the cost it would have if I'd followed the instructions. I suppose I won't be able to match the pattern but as it's so busy I don't mind.
