Fabric Consumption of a basic T-shirt

Consumption determination of fabric is a very important term in textile sector. Since it depends on fabric prices therefore accurate and closure consumption will reduce fabric wastage which will be beneficial for us economically. So, we should keep proper knowledge of fabric consumption properly.

Here today I am going to present fabric consumption of a basic T-shirt.

Calculation of Fabric Consumption

For calculating fabric consumption of a basic T-shirt following measurement will be needed.

1. Body Length
2. ½ Chest
3. Sleeve length

So, now consider

• Body length = 76 cm (For body length allowance = 3+1+1 = 5 cm)
• ½ Chest = 58 cm (For chest allowance = 2+1 = 3 cm)
• Sleeve length = 23 cm (For sleeve length allowance = 2+1+1 = 4 cm)
• GSM = 180
• Wastage % = 8%

Fabric consumption per dozen, (all measurement in cm)

[{(Body length + allowance) + (Sleeve length + allowance)} ×

(1/2 chest + allowance)] ×2 × GSM × 12

=                                                                                                         + wastage % kg/dz

10000000

So, from given value we find,

[{(76 + 5) + (23+4)} × (58+3)] × 2 × 180× 12

=                                                                                                       + wastage % kg/dz

10000000

= 2.84 + 8 % of 2.84 kg/dz

= 2.84 (1 + .08) kg/dz

= 3.04 kg/dozen

= 0.25 kg/piece
Fabric consumption per dozen, (all measurement in inches)

[{(Body length + allowance) + (Sleeve length + allowance)} ×

(1/2 chest + allowance)] ×2 × GSM × 12

=                                                                                                        + wastage % kg/dz

1550 × 1000

Suppose,

Body length              = 30 inches (allowance = 2 inches)

½ chest                     = 23 inches (allowance = 1.75 inches)

Sleeve length          = 9 inches (allowance = 1.25 inches

So, from given value we find,

[{(30 + 2) + (9 + 1.25)} × (23+1.75)] × 2 × 180 × 12

+ wastage % kg/dz

1550 × 1000

= 2.94 + 8 % of 2.84 kg/dz

= 2.94 (1 + .08 kg/dz

= 3.17 kg/dozen

= 0.26 kg/piece

Result:Fabric consumption of basic t-shirt according to given data is(0.25 0r 0.26) kg/pc
