Fabric Consumption:
Fabric consumption is an important factor in garment manufacturing. Profit of an order mostly depends on it. As a result, fabric consumption should be done accurately after receiving the order.
As its vast importance on garments merchandising, today I will discuss about the knit fabric consumption formula for T-Shirt.
Method of Knit Fabric Consumption:
Knit fabric consumption should be done by using the following formula-
Fabric consumption per dozen, (All measurements in cm),



Example:
Suppose, one of the buyer has provided you the following measurement chart of a basic T-Shirt by mentioning the order quantity and fabric GSM - Gram per square meter - (Where Fabric is 100% cotton single jersey and fabric GSM is 160 and order quantity is 10000pcs). Then calculate the fabric consumption for this order.



Solution:
Here, we will follow the measurement chart for XL size.
·         Fabric GSM- 160,
·         Total order quantity- 10000
·         Body length or shirt length- 79cm
·         Sleeve length- 43cm
·         ½ Chest width- 61cm
Now, all the measurements are applied on the following formula-
Fabric consumption per dozen, (All measurement in cm),

= 3.45 + 10% (in kg)
= 3.795 kg per dozen.
So, fabric needed for 10000pcs (833.33 dozen) garments is 3162.5kg.
