Do you know the formula for converting yardage to square feet?

Pattern calls for 2.5 yards of 45" wide fabric.
Leather is measured in square feet
How to convert?

The formula for area is:
Area = Length * Width

But first they all need to be the same basic units.

2.5 yard = 7.5 feet
45 inch = 3.75 feet

7.5 feet * 3.75 feet = 28.125 square feet

The main problem though, is your pattern seems to be expecting a specific width and length of leather. If you ask for 28.125 square feet you may get 7 feet by 4 feet or 5.6 feet by 5 feet, or any number of different possibilities. All equal the 28.125 square feet you need, but your pattern may need longer or wider than what you get.

I would try specifically asking for a 90 inch by 45 inch, just to make sure the piece is exactly what your pattern needs.
