If you’ve initially planned to use a 60-inch-wide fabric, but can find only a 45-inch-wide fabric that really pleases you, just add **between 4 and 6 extra yards of fabric**. For a smaller sofa, use 4 yards, and for a larger sofa, use 6 yards.

A two seater sofa will typically need 14 metres. A three seater will generally require **16-18 metres** and a four seater 20-22 metres. The lengths suggested are based on average sized chairs and sofas and the use of plain fabric.
