I generally assume that (for wider fabrics around 58 to 60 inches) I will be able to get a top with sleeves or skirt from 2 metres, and a dress from 3 metres.  Trousers are another matter entirely, but 2 metres may well be OK, 3 metres will be.  If I have something in mind that's different to the things I usually make I usually buy a bit extra, just to be sure.

44/45 inch fabrics I don't usually buy less than 3 metres, and I'd want to check a pattern if it was for trousers.

If it's a remnant and I love it, I'll figure something out later.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.
