Introduction:
In the garments trade, consumption means quality of raw materials with a view to determine the price of a garment. In order to calculate the above quantity how much fabric, sewing thread, zipper, button and other accessories are required to produce a garment up to the exporting is called consumption.

In previous article we have discussed about:
Fabric Consumption Calculation of Long Sleeve Woven Shirt

It is called Shortcut formula for quick consumption.

Body length = Body length + Seam allowance. (In case of wash garments, washing allowance to be added).

Body width = Chest width + Seam allowance. (In case of wash garments, washing allowance to be added).

Sleeve length = Sleeve length + Seam allowance. (in case of wash garments, washing allowances to be added).

Example :
How much fabric would be required to produce a Basic long sleeve shirt , where:

• Body length = 32"
• 1/2 Chest = 24"
• Sleeve length = 23"
• & Fabric width = 45"
Body length = 32" + 1" (Seam Allowance) = 33"

Sleeve Length = 23" + 2.5" (Cuff width) + 1.5" (Seam Allowance) = 27"

1/2 Chest Width = 24" +1" ( S.A) + 3" Pleat Width = 28"

Consumption Formula = { 1/2 Chest × ( C.B length + Sleeve length ) × 2 ÷ 36 ÷ Fabric Width + Wastage %}

So, Consumption = { 28 × (33 + 27)} × 2 ÷ 36 ÷ 44 + 5%

= {28×60} × 2 ÷ 36 ÷ 44+5%

= 2.22 yds/pc.

Conclusion :
So the consumption formula is very important for garments production and over all garments activities. Shortcut consumption formula is easy and short time formula for consumption.
