Fabric consumption depends on the width of the fabric and the size you are going to make. It also depends on the option you choose
to make: hood or round neck, pocket or no.
The amounts given below can be used as a reference to approximate fabric consumption if the fabric is at least 59 inches/150 cm
wide. It is also given for the most fabric-consuming option: with a hood, hood string, and a kangaroo pocket.
