Pattern Repeat (fabric)
The distance horizontally and/or vertically between the start and end of visual pattern on a fabric.
Some patterns are only repeated in one direction while other patterns repeat in both directions.
Knowing the size of the repeat is essential in matching pattern alignment between pattern pieces when cutting.
