Example

Now, find out the fabric consumption for the above order.

So, in the below, now I will present the total fabric consumption method for the above order in part by part:

1. Fabric consumption of Body parts (Body + Sleeve)

= {(Body length + Sleeve length)×(½ chest width)×2×GSM×12}/10000000

= {(76+28)×62×2×160×12}/10000000 (In kg)

= 2.48 kg/dz

2. Fabric’s consumption for Collar:

= (Collar length×Collar width×12×GSM)/10000000

= (40×11×12×230)/10000000

= 0.12144kg/dz

3. Fabric’s consumption for Cuff:

= (Cuff length×Cuff width×2×12×GSM)/10000000

= (26×5×2×12×230)/10000000

= 0.072kg/dz

4. Fabric’s consumption for Pocket:

= (Pocket length×Pocket width×12×GSM)/10000000

= (13×12×12×160)/10000000

= 0.03kg/dz

5. Fabrics consumption for Half-moon:

= (Half-moon length×Half-moon width×12×GSM)/10000000

= (19×11×12×160)/10000000

= 0.04kg/dz

Total Fabric Consumption

Now, the total amount of cotton single jersey fabric needed for this order is (per dozen),

= [{Fabric’s consumption for Body parts (Body +Sleeve) + Fabric’s consumption for Pocket + Fabric’s consumption for Half- moon} + wastage (10%)]

= {(2.48+ 0.03+ 0.04) kg + 10%}
= 2.55kg + 10%
= 2.805kg per dozen

So, for 10000pcs (833.33 dozen) polo shirts, cotton single jersey fabric needed (2.805 × 833.33) = 2337.5kg

The total amount of (1 × 1) Rib fabric needed for this order is (per dozen),

= {(Fabric’s consumption for Collar + Fabric’s consumption for Cuff) + wastage (10%)}
= {(0.12144 + 0.072) kg + 10%}
= (0.19344kg + 10%)
= 0.213kg per dozen.

So, for 10000pcs (833.33 dozen) polo shirts clothing, (1 × 1) Rib fabric needed (0.213 × 833.33) = 177.50kg.

Conclusion

For shirt manufacturers, precision is key. This section provides a step-by-step guide on how to calculate fabric consumption for various components such as body sections, collars, and cuffs. By breaking down the calculations, manufacturers can optimize resources and minimize material wastage, contributing to overall efficiency.
