I plan on making Simplicity 2153 as a spring jacket and planned to leave it unlined. But I decided I NEED polka-dot bias tape. I went to buy fabric for it but wasn't sure how much I needed. My phone wasn't working in the store so I just bought a yard. There was 5/8 of a yard left as a remnant...I took it.
When I got to my car I was finally able to pull up a site that converted fabric yardage to yards of bias tape.

If I'm making lots of bias tape, I make a bag first, and skip all the fiddly bits other instructions have. A clear set of instructions are here.
