Fabric Consumption of Polo T-Shirt

Front Part:
(Length +aw)*(width +aw)
=(body length +aw )*(1/2 chest + aw)
=3300 square cm

Back Part: same like front part:

(Length +aw)*(width +aw)
=(slv length –slv rib height +aw)*(arm hole circumference +aw)*2
=1806 square cm

Total fabric
=8406 Sqare Cm

Body Fabric Consumption 

=[{(Total Fabric Square Cm)*Fabric Weight *12)}/10000000] + Wastage (10%)

Rib Fabric:


= (Length +Aw)*(Width +Aw)
= (Collar Height + Aw )*Collar Width (No Aw As It Is Open)
=144 Square Cm

Collar Fabric Consumption

=[{(Toata Fabric Square Cm)*Fabric Weight *12)}/10000000] + Wastage (10%)
= 0.04kg/Dz

=(Length +Aw)*(Width +Aw)*2
=(Slv Rib Height +Aw)*(Slv Opening +Aw )*2
= (2.5+1)*(17.5+2)*2
=136.5 Square Cm

Slv Fabric Consumption

=[{(Total Fabric Square Cm)*Fabric Weight *12)}/10000000] + Wastage (10%)
=0.04kg /Dz

Body Fab = 2kg /Dz

Collar Fab =0.04kg/Dz

Slv Rib =0.04kg/Dz
= 1.32 Kg /Dz
