Sewing Thread Consumption per Body

Learn Apparel Merchandising, Learn Fashion design.
Dear All,

Sewing thread consumption is very important for the garments costing. For quick costing we use our previous idea to calculate the sewing thread cost. Please find below an approximate sewing thread consumption list for some common item. This list is based on minimum wastage. So, at first please check your percent of wastage & and try to control it.

      Please measure the length of thread at joining

      For Single needle = length X 6
      Overlock 3 = length X 16
      Overlock 5 = length X 25

      All measure with cm and convert to meters. may it helps

  7. Bipul, it's great site! Really thanks to you

    @Sabeen, you can measure all the length of the thread at joining,

    Single needle X 6
    Overlock 3 X 16
    Overlock 5 X 25

    then you can total it all (cm), convert to meters. may it helps..
