Fabric Consumption of a Basic Polo-shirt
Consumption determination of fabric is a very important term in the 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 a body part.
- Fabric consumption for Sleeves.
- Fabric consumption for half-moon
- Fabric consumption for a 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 a flat knit collar and cuff.

Dear thnx , but u have to know CAD consumption to make perfect costing…………….
As a textile Eng I think like that, Bcz time will be more complex than today
Sattar bhuiyan… if you have clear concept about CAD consumption then let us know from you. Please write for us an article about this.
Which part of polo-shirt Is called half-moon?
Really nice and informative article . .
If we are using self fabric neck tape?
Then how to calculate its consumption?
Its very effective for us,thank u so much.
my email: [email protected] send fagrics ,thread consumtion and ie formula plz help me plz plz
Thanks for your polo shirt consumption, I need flat knit color and cuff consumption formula, if possible please mail me
How can I convert this to metres? I.e a polo shirt uses 1.2m of fabric in a garment.
Very nice and helpful lesson
