How much fabric do I need to cover this chair ?

well, wonder no longer...
i found the following chart on fabric guru about 6 months ago and saved it in a "safe place".
today, i found that safe place and here it is for you to enjoy - how awesome is it?
bear in mind it is in yards (1 yard = 0.91m) and it is based on fabric that is 54 inches wide (1.37m) and it doesn't allow for pattern repeats...but it does give you a bit of an idea.
