    Any one know? I need the answer urgently. Never been taught how to do it and we're expected to work it out for our final sample submissions at uni. I've tried the internet but it was so
    Complicated I didn't understand any of it.

    I don't know why the tutors didn't tell us hpw to do it, they should have because I can't be the only one stuck right now.

    Typed it up.. says it's measured in grams per square meter.

    So, get your fabric, cut 1 meter by 1 meter and weight it in grams?
    Unless there's something confusing that I don't know of, that seems to be what you do.

    Imma add an edit in case you're not allowed to cut it:
    If you cant cut your fabric, work out the area of the fabric you are wanting to weigh (in meters). Put on a scale that's set to grams.
    Divide your grams by your total area and that's your GSM.
