If you are using the modified Kwik sew pattern, how much solar cherry fabric would you need to make a size xl flight suit?

It should have an estimate on the pattern instructions. I think it's something like six or seven yards, if I remember right? But it's always a good idea to get more. I had something around ten yards, I believe, because I wanted to play it safe. Granted I did remake a few things, hence the extra material...

If you bring the pattern instructions into a fabric store someone there can also help you out with recommended amounts.
