Fabric Consumption of a basic Polo-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 polo-shirt.
Fabric consumption of a polo-shirt is the sum of fabric consumption of different parts of polo-shirt:
- Fabric consumption for body part.
- Fabric consumption for Sleeves.
- Fabric consumption for half-moon
- Fabric consumption for pocket.
For calculating fabric consumption of a basic polo-shirt following measurement will be needed.
- Body Length
- ½ Chest
- Sleeve length
- ½ Armhole
- Length of half- moon
- Width of half-moon
- Length of pocket
- Width of pocket
So, now consider
||= 72 cm (For body length allowance = 3+1.5 = 4.5 cm)|
||= 58 cm (For chest allowance = 2+2= 4 cm)|
||= 23 cm (For sleeve length allowance = 2+1.5= 3.5 cm)|
||= 24 cm (For sleeve opening allowance = 2+1 = 3 cm)|
||= 18 cm (allowance = 1.5+1.5 = 3 cm|
||=10 cm (allowance = 1.5+1.5 = 3 cm)|
||= 12 cm (allowance = 2.5+1 = 3.5 cm)|
||= 11 cm (allowance = 1+1 = 2 cm)|
||= 180 (Lacoste)|
Fabric consumption per dozen, (all measurement in cm)
For every part of a polo shirt,
= 2.04+0.61+0.06+0.04 kg/dz
= 2.75 kg/dz
So, Fabric consumptiuon for a polo shirt,
= 2.75 + 8% of 2.75 kg/dz (Here 8% is wastage of fabric)
= 2.75 + .22 kg/dz
= 2.97 kg/dz
So, Fabric consumption of a polo-shirt = 2.97 kg/dz
Note: Here I have made consumption of polo shirt which has a pocket. Here I did not mention collar and cuff consumption because maximum time in a polo shirt there is used flat knit collar and cuff.
