Tablecloth Sizing Steps

1st Tablecloth Sizing Step -

You need to know the dimensions (size) of your table and the shape. Example: Is it a 45" Wide x 45" Long? Is it Round, Rectangle, Square or Oval?

FYI - Our Standard Oval is called a Racetrack Oval, which is round on the ends and straight on the sides. If your oval table is more of an egg shape or an odd oval you may want to provide us with a pattern so we can customize your cloth to fit correctly. Go to our Pattern Help Page for Pattern instructions! If you have any questions, please give us a call. We would be happy to help!

2nd Tablecloth Sizing Step -

Decide how many inches of fabric you would like to hang over the table or piece of furniture. This is known as the drop. (hint: take a dish towel or piece of fabric and hang over your table or piece of furniture to get a visual on the length you would like and then measure the length of it.) This will determine what the drop is that you will want?

Typically for standard dinning room tables most individuals desire a 8" - 10" - 12" drop (12" is usually lap level).

15" for standard banquet tables

29"-30" to the floor

3rd Tablecloth Sizing Step - Once you know the dimension of your table and & the drop you desire then all you need to do is multiply the drop by two and add it to each dimension (width & length) or (circumference).


You have a table which is a 36" width by 60" length Rectangle; Your desired drop is 12"

Calculate as follows:

12" drop x 2 = 24" (will hang 12" on each side)

Add 36" Width + 24" = 60"
Add 60" Length + 24" = 84"


Figuring Round cloths is similar. Say your circumference is 60" and you want a 10" drop. You would multipy 10" x 2 = 20" and then and the 20" to the 60" circumference which would tell you that you need a 80" Round Tablecloth.

Please feel free to give us a call if you need any assistance figuring out what size of cloth you need.
