**Garment Costing:**

Costing means the total cost of garments. It is the process of estimating and then determining the total cost of producing a garment. In costing every price is included. The cost of a garment is a very necessary and important task. In this factory, costing is carried out by the merchandising department.

Firstly merchandiser contacts the buyer and collects the order. Then he is provided a sample section according to the buyer’s specification. The sample section also supplies the fabric consumption. The cost of the fabric is determined according to the consumption. Then he makes the costing of other raw materials, Accessories, trimmings, etc. He adds all production costs, transport costs, commission, and profit.

Unit |
Price |
Costing |

Fabric Consumption 1.94 kg/dz | $ 6/kg | $11.64/kg |

Accessories | $3.5/dz | $3.5/dz |

CM (Cost of Manufacturing) | $4/dz | $4/dz |

Total | $19.14/dz |

**Costing of Men’s T-shirt:**

Direct Cost (Raw Materials) = $19.14/dz

Indirect Cost (15% of Direct Cost) =$ 19.14*15%=$2.871

Total Cost (Direct Cost + Indirect Cost) = $19.14+$2.871= $22.011

Profit (7% of Total Cost) = $22.011*7% = $1.55

Price for 1 Dozen Men’s Shirt (Total Cost + Profit) = $23.55

So, the Price of 1 Dozen of Men’s T-Shirt is $23.55
