Alternative Cascade Yardages
I've gotten an uptick in emails lately asking about specific yardage combinations for the Cascade Duffle Coat based on two of my samples, so I thought I'd share those on the blog today in case anyone else is wondering this same thing. The first yardage is for the image above, the Cascade with a contrast yoke and hood.
For this variation you'll need 1 yd extra of fabric and you'll need to cut pieces 1, 3, 12, 31, 32, 33, and 34 out of it.
The second variation is from my original Cascade coat a few years back where the lining of the hood and the zipper bands are cut from flannel. For this variation you'll need 7/8 yds of fabric and you'll cut pieces 17/30, 31, and 32 from it.
Hope this answers your Cascade contrasting fabric questions if you had any. Also please note that all yardage for these variations was calculated with a size 18 and 45" wide fabric. If you're using a smaller size or wider fabric you may be able to adjust a bit.
