Fabric Consumption of a Basic T-Shirt

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 a proper knowledge of fabric consumption properly.

Calculation of Fabric Consumption

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

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

Fabric Consumption of a Basic T-Shirt

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
