### Cost & Consumption calculation of Sweater

Learn Apparel Merchandising, Learn Fashion design.
Cost & Consumption calculation of Sweater
From this example we will learn how calculate the price of sweater

Style: Cable leader Jumper, 100% Acrylic, 3 GG
Say,
Weight of yarn = 12.00 LBS/Doz
Wastage of yarn  = 10%
Yarn price = \$2.50/lbs
Accessories Cost = \$4.00/doz
CM  = \$36.00/doz

Costing
Rules =  {(Sweater garments weight(doz) + Wastage) X Yarn price(per lbs)} + Accessories cost (per doz) + CM (per doz)
= (12.00 + 10%) X \$2.50 + \$4.00 + \$36.00
= (13.2 X \$2.50) + \$4.00 + \$36.00
= \$33.00 + \$4.00 + \$36.00
= \$73.00/doz (without any commercial cost)
= \$6.0833 / pc
