Introduction:
Fabric consumption is very important to find out the quantity of fabrics required to produce a garments. The main reason of this consumption is to bring an assumption over costing of the garments. After getting all the measurements if we apply them into the following equation we will get fabric consumption of that particular part per dozen.

The equation is Cloth per Dozen (CPD) = (L × W × GSM × 12) / 10

Where,

L= Length of the part,
W = Width of the part ,

GSM (Gram Per Square Meter) = 220

Fabric Consumption for different parts:

1. Fabric consumption for body part.
2. Fabric consumption for Sleeves.
3. Fabric consumption for Collar.
4. Fabric consumption for Cuff
Here,

a) G.S.M. (given by buyer)

• Body 145 – 150
• Collar (12pcs) 400
• Cuff (12 x 2) 300
b) Sewing & seam allowance 1.50 – 3cm

c) Wastage % 7%

d) Measurement chart (given by buyer Measurement Chart):

 Parts Name Given Estimated a) Chest 96 cm 102 cm b) HPS 65 cm 70 cm c) Sleeve length 20 cm 25 cm d) Arm hole 46 cm 49 cm e) Collar length 46 cm 46 cm f) Collar width 7 cm 10 cm g) Cuff length 26 cm 10 cm h) cuff width 3 cm 5cm

L x W x 12 x GSM
A) Fabric consumption for body part. (CPD) = .................................... kg
10000000
70 x 102x 12 x 150 kg

= ..................................... kg
10000000

= 1.28
kg
L x W x 12 x 2 x GSM
B) Fabric consumption for Sleeves. (CPD) = ........................................ kg
10000000

25 x 49 x 12 x 2 x 150 kg

= ............................................ kg
10

= 0.44 kg

L x W x 12 x GSM
C) Fabric consumption for Collar. (CPD) = ........................................ kg

10

46 x 10 x 12 x 400

= ....................................... kg
10

= 0.22 kg
L x W x 12 x 2 x GSM
D) Fabric consumption for Cuff (CPD) = ............................................ kg

10

30 x 5 x 12 x 2 x 300

= ......................................... kg

10

= 0.108 kg

Fabric Consumption:
1.28 kg/ dozen (body) + 0.44 kg/ dozen (sleeve) + 0.22 kg/dozen (collar) + 0.108 kg/dozen (cuff)

= 2.05 kg/dozen

Total fabric consumption:
Total fabric + 7% wastage

= 2.19 kg/dozen.

So, fabric consumption for 1 dozen polo shirt is 2.19 kg.
