Measure the length of the reupholster dining chair cushion with measuring tape and write it down. Measure the width of the chair pad and write this down as well. If either dimension has an angle that causes one side to be longer than the other, measure the angle at the longest point. Add 6 inches to each dimension to allow the fabric to be attached to the underside of the seat (with staples or upholstery pins). For example, if the width of the pillow is 20 inches, add 6 inches to make it 26 inches.
If the height is 22 inches, add 6 inches to make it 28 inches. Calculate the fabric yardage for a reupholster dining chair. Because the upholstery fabric is generally 54 inches wide, 1 yard upholstery will be 54 inches by 36 inches. Using the dimensions in the example dining room chair seat, you need half yard of fabric for each seat. As long as a dining chair has a dimension less than 27 inches (after adding an additional 6 inches), you will be able to cover two chairs with 1 yard fabric.
