# Fabric Consumption of a Basic T-Shirt

If you’re a beginner in the world of sewing, one of the essential skills you need to learn is how to calculate the fabric consumption of a basic t-shirt. Whether you’re making t-shirts for yourself or for others, knowing how much fabric you need can save you time, money, and effort. By accurately calculating the fabric consumption, you can avoid overbuying or underbuying fabric, which can both result in wasted resources. In this article, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of calculating the fabric consumption of a basic t-shirt.

Determining the Fabric Consumption of a Basic T-Shirt is required to identify the cost of fabric for each garment. Since fabric cost depends on the fabric price therefore accurate and closure consumption will reduce fabric wastage which will be beneficial to make cost-effective garments. So, we should keep proper knowledge of fabric consumption properly.

### Calculation of Fabric Consumption of a Basic T-shirt

For calculating the fabric consumption of a basic T-shirt following measurements 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 measurements in cm)

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

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

=                                                                                                         + wastage % kg/dz

10000000

So, from the 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 measurements 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 the 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-shirts according to the given data is(0.25 0r 0.26) kg/pc
