Tech Tuesday #10: Half Drop Fabrics

Does your fabric have a very large design with a diagonal arrangement of motifs? You might have chosen a half drop fabric. There is a special challenge to handling these types of fabrics when quoting yardage, and cutting and matching widths in the workroom. But at Stevenson Vestal, we are up for the challenge! Enjoy the comic below (click or tap the image to see full size).
