*ALL YARDAGE REQUIREMENTS ARE BASED ON 54" PLAIN

Base C.O.M. calculation on the following:

  1. Start with 54" solid railroad C.O.M. yardage requirements found by the style chosen.
  2. See chart below to determine additional percentage based on fabric width and largest repeat.
  3. Ad 15% if flow match is needed.
  4. Add the following amounts for self-decks when using C.O.M. Sofa -2 yards / Loveseat 1.5 yards / Chair- 1 yard.

*The above chart is a guideline ONLY. More or less fabric may be needed, depending on other elements of the fabric's design.

Mark all C.O.M. fabric as follows:

  1. Mark front side.
  2. Mark the direction of the patterns top.

Please complete the BBH C.O.M. Packing List and include with all C.O.M. shipments.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: We reserve the right to refuse to work with unusually delicate or otherwise unusual fabrics which, in our estimation, our sewing equipment is not capable of handling with 100% assurance. In such cases, we will override our own recommendation ONLY when the customer assumes FULL RESPONSIBILITY for any resulting damage to the fabric and/or manufacturing quality problems that result directly from problems that are due to the quality of such fabrics. The C.O.M. calculation is an estimated guideline; therefore, we cannot assume responsibility for any excess yardage due to various pattern layout.
