bending sheet metal

I have a question, I created a piece using the sheet metal feature with two bends, but when I bring in the flat pattern to have it laser cut the piece ended up being one 1” wider than  I wanted it to be. I don’t think solidworks accounted for the thickness of the material. I started my drawing with the piece already bent, should I have started with a plat sketch and then bend the pieces the way I wanted to? Should it make a difference.
