Fabric Consumption of a Basic Woven Shirt

Measurement required:
  1. Body length (HSP) = 75cm.
  2. ½ Chest= 55cm.
  3. Sleeve length= 65cm.
  4. Arm hole (Straight) = 25cm.
  5. Collar length= 41cm.
  6. Collar width= 6cm.
  7. Collar band length= 32cm.
  8. Collar band width= 2cm.
  9. Pocket length= 14cm.
  10. Pocket width= 12cm.
  11. Extra yoke length= 48cm.
  12. Extra yoke height= 11.5cm.
  13. Fabric width= 56inch.
  14. Wastage= 5%.
Body Section:
A= (Body length + Allowance) × (½ chest + Allowance) × 2
   = (75+5) × (55+6) × 2 sq.cm.
   = 9760 sq.cm.
Sleeve Section:
B= (Sleeve length + Allowance) × (Arm hole + Allowance) ×2×2
   = (65+4) × (25+) ×4 sq.cm.
   =8280 sq.cm.
Collar Section:
C= (Collar length+ Allowance) × (Collar width+ Allowance) ×2
   = (41+4) × (6+2) ×2 sq.cm.
   = 720 sq.cm.
Collar Band Section:
D= (Collar band length+ Allowance) × (Collar band width+ Allowance) ×2
   = (32+3) × (2+2) ×2 sq.cm.
   = 280 sq.cm.
Pocket Section:
E= (Pocket length+ Allowance) × (Pocket width+ Allowance)
   = (14+2) ×(12+1) sq.cm.
   = 208 sq.cm.
Extra Yoke Section:
F= (Yoke length+ Allowance) ×( Yoke height+ Allowance) ×2
   = (48+4) × (11.5+3) ×2 sq.cm.
   = 108 sq.cm.
Total Fabric Consumption = A+B+C+D+E+F
     = 9760+8280+720+280+208+1508
     = 20756 sq.cm.
Now divided this amount by (2.54)2, then we will get 3217.18 sq.inch.
So, Total Fabric Required = (3217.18/56) inch.
                                           = (57.45/36) yards.
                                           = 1.6yards.
So, Fabric Consumption per dozen= 1.6× 12 +5% OLF
                                                        = (19.2+ 0.96) Yards.
                                                        = 20.16 yards.
Fabric Price per Yards is = $2.5
So, Fabric Cost = $2.5× 20.16
                          = $ 50.4
