Fabric Consumption Calculation
Consumption of fabric is a very important and tough work in apparel industry. Because profit of apparel business maximum depend on perfect costing. So merchandiser should do this work carefully.
Consumption Calculation of Basic T-shirt
For determination of fabric consumption of any parts of a t-shirt, we have to take reading length and maximum width of this part of t-shirt. And then we have to multiply length with width to find out the area of fabric required of this part and other should be followed as unit terms.

Measurement Chart:
  1. Sleeve length: -------------------------76 cm
  2. ½ chest width: -------------------------58 cm
  3. Body length: ---------------------------24 cm
  4. Sleeve hem width: ---------------------2.5 cm
  5. Bottom hem width: --------------------2.5 cm
  6. Neck width: (1+2+3+4+5): -----------21 cm
  7. Neck rib width: -----------------------2.5 cm
  8. Fabrics weight: -----------------------180 GSM (Single jersey)
Note: GSM= Gram per square meter
For knit fabric (Single jersey), GSM may be from 110-520

Consumption of Basic T-shirt:

Body length = 76 + 2.5 (hem width) + 3.5 (seam allowance) = 82 cm

Sleeve length = 24 + 2.5 (hem width) + 3.5 (seam allowance) = 30 cm

½ Chest width = 58 + 6 (seam allowance) = 64 cm

Consumption Formula:

= { ½ chest X (Body length + Sleeve length)} X 2 X GSM / 10000000 + wastages % Kg/piece

= {64 X (82 + 30) X 2} X 180 / 1000000 + 10%

= 0.25 + 0.02

= 0.27 Kg/pc

= 0.27 X 12 Kg/doz

= 3.24 Kg/doz

Neck consumption = 150 gm/doz =0.15 Kg/doz

Tapping or piping consumption = 50 gm/doz = 0.05 kg/doz

Total consumption = 3.25 + 0.15 + 0.05 = 3.44 Kg/doz

Fabric consumption for 1 dozen basic short sleeve t-shirt is 3.44 Kg (ANS)
