Can someone clarify sizing? is the small meant to fit sizes 10-12? the pattern piece has size and the instructions have measurements. thanks!

Hi! So in these kinds of patterns, you want to measure yourself and compare them to the "Body Measurements" section to determine your size. The "sizes" are based on industry standard sizing, and are drastically different from what you would normally see those sizes in a store. I personally ignore the "sizes" and stick with the measurements.

how much fabric did the border caftan require?

The purple caftan needs the following of 45 inch wide fabric: small 4 yds., medium 6 5/8 yds., large 6 5/8 yds. Of 60 inch wide fabric: small 4 yds., medium 4 1/8 yds., large 4 1/8 yds. There are 3 trims. 1/4 in., 5/8 in., and 1 1/4 in. Wide. You need 6 3/8 yards of each.

How many yards for pattern 2

For view 2, for 45" wide fabric, it takes 4 yards(size S)to 6 5/8 yards(sizes M & L). For fabric 60" wide, S takes 4 yards and S & M take 4 1/8 yards.
