Introduction:
Thread consumption is very important for the garments making. In today’s competitive marketplace, there is a need for tight cost control of products. Besides, it is important to know the amount of thread consumed in a sewn product. To determine thread consumption you just need to multiply seam length with that factors. Thread consumption of a full sleeve shirt is given below.
Formula = M x SQ x TPI x P

Where,

M- Measurement
SQ- Sewing Quantity
TPI- Thread per inch

P-Part

Thread consumption for different component of a shirt

Collar,

L = M X SQ X TPI X P
= 16 X 2 X 2.5 X 1
= 80 Inch

W = 3 X 2 X 2.5 X 2
= 30 Inch

Collar band,

L=16 x 4 x 2.5 x 1
= 160Inch

W =1 X 2 X 2.5 X 2
=10 Inch

Shoulder,
L = 8 X 2 X 2.5 X 2
= 80 Inch

Arm hole.
L = 20 X 2 X 2.5 X 2
= 200 Inch

Over lock (O/L) = 20 X 1 X 9 X 2
= 360 Inch

Cuff,
L = 10 X 4 X 2.5 X 2 =200 Inch
W = 2 X 4 X 2.5 X 2 =40 Inch

Pocket
L = 5 X 1 X 2.5 X 2 = 25 Inch
W = 5 X 1 X 2.5 X 2 = 25 Inch

Upper Placket,
L = 6 X 1 X 2.5 X 2 =30 Inch
W = 1 X 2 X 2.5 X 2 =10 Inch

Lower Placket,
L = 5 X 2 X 2.5 X 2 = 50 Inch
W=5 X 1 X 2.5 X 1 = 12.5 Inch

Box plate,
L = 30 X 2 X 2.5 X 1 = 150 Inch

Button plate,
L = 30 X 1 X 2.5 X 1 = 75 Inch

Label,
L = 1.5 X 2 X 2.5 X 3 = 22.5 Inch

Yoke,
L = 21 X 1 X 2.5 X 1 = 52.5 Inch

Side seam,
L = 20 X 1 X 2.5 X 2 = 100 Inch

Hem,
L = 48 X 1 X 2.5 X 1 = 120 Inch

Button hole,
= Part X Required thread per part
= 13 X 6 = 78 Inch

Button attach,
= Part X Required thread per part
= 17 X 5.5 = 93.5 Inch

Under Sleeve,

L = 21 XC 1 X 2.5 X 2 = 105 Inch

Over lock (O/L) = 21 X 1 X 9 X 2 = 378 Inch

TOTAL = 2487 Inch/69 yds/ 63.30 meter

With wastage (20%) = 63.30 + 12.66 = 76 meter

For 500 pieces of shirt

76 X 500 = 37980 meter

Let, 3000 meters sewing thread are in each cone

No of cone = 37980/3000
= 13 Pieces cone
