Good Morning,
I have to apologize because I know I have posted this and asked this before but my searches for the past post have not been successful.
 
What is your reccomendation per yard (or other reference) for fabric length allowance for shrinkage in fabric length due to stich puckering / binding addition?
 
Regards,
Keri

About 2" per 10 feet of Sunbrella. The amount of needle pucker varies according to the softness of the material.
Thanks, Matt
