Selvedge - Pattern Repeat Markings

Debbie Colgrove, Licensed to About.com
The selvedge of many print fabrics have pattern repeat markings. These markings allow you to know when the pattern starts so that you can easily have every panel be the same.

The amount of extra fabric to buy will depend on how often the fabric repeats. There is no getting around buying extra to match a print.
