How do I order 1-1/2 or 2-1/2 or any whole number plus a half yard of the same fabric?

One half yard of the fabric will be added to your shopping cart for a total of 2-1/2 yards of the same fabric. The cost of the fabric will automatically adjust to your choice of fabric length.
How do I order only 1 half yard or 1 fat quarter?
