Fabric Consumption per Shirt:_______

Note: All fields are mandatory. If you want to skip any measurement points, type '0' in that place.

Disclaimer: The above calculation is made based on the sum of pattern areas (considering each pattern is a rectangular shape) and then the area is converted into linear fabric length by diving fabric width. In actual you should estimate fabric calculation based on marker. Actual fabric requirements may vary depending on these variables.


An example:
I have taken one shirt from my wardrobe. It is a 39 size full sleeve formal shirt (Brand - Peter England). I have taken the following measurements (Image-1) in centimeters and also noted seam allowances and folds (pocket opening, bottom fold).

With the above measurements, I have calculated fabric consumption (Image-2) using this fabric consumption calculator. Fabric width (54 inches) is converted into centimeters (137cm). Fabric wastage 5%. After entering all values on the calculator, click on the 'Calculate' button. 

The calculated fabric consumption is 141 meters.
