Fabric Consumption Calculation System:
We can calculate and determine the consumption of fabric by the following two system:
  1. Marker planning system
  2. Mathematical system
Basic information relevant to consumption:
  1. Measurement with technical specification
  2. Style description
  3. Fabric description
  4. Fabrics width / weight
  5. Washing shrinkage
Fabrics width:
Width of different fabrics is available thus: 35”, 45”, 50” and 60”.

Some measures and weights:
  • 1 yds = 1260 sq inch if fabric width is 35 inch
  • 1 yds = 1620 sq inch if fabric width is 45 inch
  • 1 yds = 1800 sq inch if fabric width is 50 inch
  • 1 yds = 1980 sq inch if fabric width is 55 inch
  • 1 yds = 2160 sq inch if fabric width is 60 inch
Consumption can be made in two systems. First and the second system are given below:

A details consumption of different parts of some garments is given below with illustrations.

Say, Fabric width = 45” – 1” (Shrinkage allowance) = 44”


                                                    Length X Width
Consumption Formula = ……………………………………………….
                                          Fabric width X Fabric unit (36”)
