Fabric Consumption for Basic T-shirt

Calculation – 01: Formula in Centimeter:

Suppose one of the T-shirt’s Body length (72+4) cm, Slib length (23+2) cm, Chest length (Dia) (53+2) cm, and G.S.M 180. Determine the fabric consumption for the basic T-Shirt.

Solution:

Here, Body Length = 76 cm
Sleeve Length = 25 cm
Chest Length = 55×2=110 cm (For both side)

We get,

……………………………………(Body length + Sleeve length) x (Chest x 2) x G.S.Μ
Fabric consumption = …………………………………………………………………………………. Kg
…………………………………………………………………1000 x 10000

…..(76 + 25) x (55×2) x 180
= ……………………………………..
………….1000 x 10000

…..101 x 19800
= …………………..
…..10000000

…….1999800
= ………………….
…..10000000

= 0.19998 kg

The amount of fabric is just for 1 piece. Generally, 12 pieces are counted with one.

Fabric consumption for 1 Dozen = 12×0.19998 kgs
= 2.399 kgs

Fabric consumption for 1 Dozen 2 kgs and 399 gms.

Calculation – 02: Formula in Inch:

Here, Body Length = (28+ 1) inch
Sleeve Length = (9+1) inch

Chest Length = (21+1) inch =22 inch×2
= 44 inch

G.S.M = 180

According to formula,

…………………………………….(Body length + Sleeve length) x (Chest x 2) x G.S.Μ
Fabric consumption = ……………………………………………………………………………………. Kg
………………………………………………………………..1550 x 1000

(29 + 10) x (22×2) x 180
= …………………………………..
…………..1550 x 1000

…….308880
= ………………
……1550000

= 0.199920 kgs

The amount of fabric is just for 1 piece. Generally, 12 pieces are counted with one.

Fabric consumption for 1 Dozen = 12×0.199920 kg
= 2.391 kg

Fabric consumption for 1 Dozen 2 kg and 391 gm.
