This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (.5m; ½ m). Eg. for 2.5m, enter the quantity ‘5’.
If the precise colour, weight and feel of the fabric is important for your decision, and the photos aren’t giving you enough detail, the best option to eliminate disappointment is to use the Swatch Service. Each Swatch is .50c. See under the 'About' tab for more details.
This is a unique designer fabric end, with a seasonally versatile content of 57% Cotton, 27% Poly, and 13% Acrylic. It has the great feature of being reversible. Officially, I believe the pink side is the ‘right’ side but the jury is out on this as both sides are beautiful. It would work well as a ‘patch’ style jacket or top (working with both sides), or in an unlined coat that would allow the underside to also show.
For your cloth edit, consider semi-fitted, relaxed or oversized jackets and coats, boxy tops, skirts, and dresses (eg. shift, sheath, and fit and flare).

Although a Cotton blend, take more care with this. It is a substantial weave that you don’t want to ‘pull’. Hand wash in cool water. Do not rub, or wring the garment. Dry flat. Dry Cleanable. Spot test for iron temp, and use the cooler setting. It is not recommended to machine wash, but if you do, test with a scrap first, use a mesh washing bag, and dry flat.
