Cording Allowances: Bias Cut Yardage. Cording fabric is cut on the bias (diagonal) when it is used to cover cording. The bias has a slight natural stretch that allows fabric to ease around bends and curves without puckering. The longest center cuts are used first to avoid seaming.
The Bias Yardage Chart below provides you with the total inches of bias cut yardage yielded from ONE YARD of fabric. The minimum yardage we can use to make suitable bias cuts is ½ yard. First find total inches of cording required and size of cording required.
