Consumption for Knit Garments: Knit f abric consumption calculation is one of the most important part of knit garment Merchandising. It plays important rules in costing of garments. Firstly, you've to know what you going to make or about the measurement? All measurement has it length and width. T he standard measurement f or weight and quality of knit f abrics is grams per square meter (GSM). To calculate the knit fabric consumption following information is required: 1. Body length of the garment in cm. Suppose it is - 70 cm+5cm (Sewing allowance)=75cm c. Sleeve length of the garment in cm. Suppose it is 20 cm+5cm (Sewing allowance)=25cm 2. 1/2 Chest width in cm. Suppose it is 48 cm+2cm (Sewing allowance)=50cm 3. Armhole circumf erence in cm. Suppose it is-40cm+2cm (Sewing allowance)=42cm 4. Fabric GSM. Suppose it is 180 gsm 5. Percentage of f abric wastage . Suppose it is 10% Formula for Fabric of Knit Garments Consumption: {(Body length + Sleeve length + Sewing Allowance) X (1/2 Chest + Sewing Allowance)}X 2 X GSM X 12 / 10000000 + Wastage% Here, Body Length = in CM Sleeve Length = in CM Chest/Bottom (most widest part) = in CM GSM = gm/m2 Example for 1 dozen garments: {(Body length + Sleeve length + Sewing Allowance) X (1/2 Chest + Sewing Allowance)}X 2 X GSM X 12 / 10000000 + Wastage% = {(73 + 19.5 + 10) X (52 + 4)} X 2 X 160 X 12 / 10000000 + 10% = (102.5 X 56) X 2 X 160 X 12 / 10000000 + 10% = 5740 X 2 X 160 X 12 /10000000 +10% = 22041600 / 10000000 + 10% = 2.20416 + 10 %
