New member and yardage

Hello! This will be my first major lace project (I've done a couple of small scarves and handkerchiefs) and I'm very excited! I ordered a back copy of the magazine, so I can't wait for it to come in to get started! I was wondering if someone could leave a comment with the yardage required for this project? I would like to go ahead and purchase the yarn so I'm ready when the magazine comes in! Thank you!

I am knitting my Swallowtail as written without increasing the number of repeats and it looks like I'll be using just under 400 yards of laceweight. I'm a fairly tight knitter, so your yarn mileage may vary. I *did* buy an extra skein just in case, but it looks like I'll be returning it unless the last few rows gobble up lots more yarn than I'm thinking they will.
