Is this another difference in retail fabric vs. production?

I recently got contacted about a production deadline and dire need of help stitching. This was an issue, besides others that came up from poor planning. The fabric being used was a Japanese quilt cotton print winch had an almost 3″ selvage which ended up going 3″ into the skirt pattern because it wasn’t adjusted for the fabric. I wish they had this article and a few others, this had to have been the worst production job as far as planning I’ve ever worked on.

It can be very interesting to match up repeats when planning a curtain. Good information since under ordering fabric can cause big problems.

Great for materials which are hard to differentiate which is the right one. Thanks….and as. Bente said every little bit of information is there for a reason

I love that there are rules/general guides for everything, until the smallest detail.
Also if the fabric have holes on the selvage part you have a good indication of what is face side (if it doesn’t come on a roll). The holes are poked from wrong side and make a bump on the face side of the fabric.
