During May, Nolan manufactured 15,000 pillowcases, using 27,600 yards of fabric costing $3.05 per yard and incurring direct labor costs of $16,218 for 3,180 hours of direct labor. The standard cost per pillowcase assumes 1.75 yards of fabric at $3.10 per yard, and 0.20 hours of direct labor at $5.95 per hour.
