Why did you choose this?
I am decorating for my wedding. We want to cover the walls from ceiling to floor. The room is about 90ft long per side and the height approx. 15 ft. We also need fabric behind the head table so another 30 ft. How in the world do I purchase enough fabric. Im not sure how the measurements work?
BEST ANSWER: Here's my answer in case someone else has a similar question. You don't have to be exact with the width because you'll be multiplying it for fullness and it's not really going to matter if you end up with 2.37 times the fullness when you wanted 2.5 times. So, I consider this fabric to be 10 ft wide (12" per ft times 10 is 120", close enough to the 118 inch width of the roll).
It's easy from there to figure out how many separate panels you'll need. For each 90 ft wall, you'll need 9 panels to cover the wall flat (90 ft divided by 10 foot panels equals 9 panels).
If the walls are 15 ft high, you'll need each panel to be 5 yds. Don't worry about seam allowances yet. So for each wall that's 90 ft long (9 widths of the fabric) by 15 feet (5 yards) tall, you would need 45 yds for FLAT coverage. 9 panels X 5 yrs each = 45 yds.
That would cover it like wallpaper. The minimum recommendation for curtains is usually 2 1/2 times the thickness. With something sheer, you'll want more if you're needing to cover things on the walls like signs that you don't want to show through. So let's say you want 3 times the fullness, you'd multiply your "flat" amount by 3, so you'd need 135 yards per wall. 45 yds X 3 fullness = 135 yds. Or you can think of it as wanting 3 panels per 10 ft instead of 1, so you'd want 27 per wall instead of 9. So 27 panels X 5yds each=135yds.
Since you multiplied by 3 to get plenty of fullness, you don't really need to worry about the 2" each panel is short of 10 ft or the seam allowances all around. You'll actually cut each panel a few inches over 5 yds and will end up with 26 on each wall instead of 27, but it won't be a showl. Or to be safe, you can add another 5-6 yards per wall to make sure you have enough fullness. Hope that helps.
What shade of silver is this; very light, medium, darker, etc.? Does it have a true sparkle/metallic that creates the silver color or is it closer to a light grey? I have a rush commission order so no time for swatches. Thanks!
BEST ANSWER: The color is a light gray (not very light, but lighter than a medium gray). It has a very slight sheen, but it doesn't have a metallic or shiny quality.
