I am looking into buying some yummy Guatemalan woven fabric for a wrap style carrier that I want to make. I am a plus size (size20) and do not know how many yards to buy. I have been online for over an hour trying to figure this out. Can anyone help? Thank you!!!!

http://www.didymos.de/en/DIDYMagazine/Baby-Carriers/Sizes/ probably a 5.7 finished I'd suggest planing for the fabric shrinking though.

Thank you very much. Most of the sites I saw that had manufactured wraps did not say how long they were! Thanks for the great website!!
