Thread Consumption formula,
            = M×SQ×TPI×P
                        Where, M= Measurement.
                                    SQ= Sewing quality.
                                    TPI= Thread per inch.
                                    P= Part.
Thread consumption of a basic woven shirt (Here every measurement in inch):
  1. Collar:
Length= 16×2×2.5= 80 inch.
Width= 3×2×2.5= 15 inch.
  1. Collar band:
Length= 17×2×2.5=85 inch.
Width= 1×2×2.5= 5inch.
  1. Shoulder:
Length= 20×2×2.5= 100 inch.
Width= 3×2×2.5= 15inch.
  1. Arm hole:
Length= 16×2×2.5×2= 160 inch.
O/L= 16×1×9×2= 288 inch.
  1. Cuff:
Length= 10×3×2.5×2 = 150 inch.
Width= 3×2×2. ×2= 30 inch.
  1. Upper placket:
Length= 6×1×2.5×2= 30 inch.
  1. Lower placket.
Length= 6×1×2.5×2= 30 inch.
  1. Box plate:
Length= 1.5 ×2×2.5×2= 15 inch.
Width= 0.5×2×2.5×2= 10 inch.
  1. Label:
Width= 1×1×2.5×3= 7.5 inch.
  1. Side seam:
Length= 25×2×2.5×2= 20 inch.
  1. Sleeve side seam:
Length= 26×2×2.5×2= 260 inch.
  1. Hem:
Length= 48×1×2.5= 120 inch.
  1. Button hole:
Thread= 10×12= 120 inch.
  1. Button attach:
Thread= 12×5= 60 inch.
  1. Button plate/Facing (Upper and lower):
Length= 30×3×2.5= 225 inch.
Total thread required = 2060.5 inch.
Now divided this amount of thread by 36, then we will get = 57.23 yds.
Now divided this amount of thread by 1.09, then we will get = 52.51m.
So, Total thread consumption of a basic woven shirt is 52.51 meter.
