Pintastic! Sewing Calculators

Pintastic is your guide to what's hot, happening and helpful on Pinterest! We are here to sort through the vast array of sewing related pins and bring you the cream of the crop. In this post we are tackling Sewing Calculators. There are so many elements of sewing I relish but doing the sums is not one of them but lucky for me, there are Sewing Calculators to help me out.  

Hemline Calculator from The Sewing Space


This helps you calculate the length of a skirt. You enter your height in cm and the calculator will give you the lengths for maxi, midi, knee, mini and micro mini. To use the calculator, click here and you will be taken to the original post.

Circle Skirt Calculator from Patty the Snug Bug



This skirt allows you to calculate the measurements for drafting half, full and 3/4 circle skirts to your waist measurement. This comes with a bonus worksheet for grading. To use the calculator, click here and you will be taken to the original post. 

Bias Binding Calculator from So Sew Easy 



This will help you work out how much continuous bias binding a square of fabric will make or what size square you'll need to make a given amount of continuous bias. It has various size options for both single and double fold bias tape. To use the calculator, click here and you will be taken to the original post. There is the option to download the calculator or printable tables. 

Yardage Calculator for Curtains/Drapes from Online Fabric Store



This is a rather comprehensive calculator that includes information such as pattern repeat and fullness, however all measurements must be in inches. To use the calculator, click here and you will be taken to the original post.

Piecing Calculator for Bedding from Simplicity 



This gives you several ways to piece fabric to create standard bedding, including sizes. It's more of a diagram than a calculator but just as helpful. To view the calculator, click here and you will be taken to the original post.
