# Fabric Cnsumption Calculation Formula For Pant

Print This PostThere are two ways to calculate the fabric consumption:

1. Mathematical

2. By using Marker planning (Its best for accurate calculation).

## I am explaining here the Mathematical one:

To do this you have to have sample in your hand. I have one in my hand now and

That has below sizes:

Waist = 32″

Hip = 44″

Thigh = 26″

Bottom = 18″

Length = 42″

We have to add sewing allowance with that and it should be 2″

Here goes the general formula:

Width =(Waist+Hip)/2 + (Thigh+Bottom)/2

=(32″+44″)/2 + (26″+18″)/2

=60″

Length = 42″

So total requirement is = Length X Width

= 42″ X 60″

= 2520 sqr inch

### Let’s assume the width of the fabric role is 56″

so, 2520″/56″ = 45″

= 45″/36″

= 1.25 yrds ( 1 Yrd= 36″)

So per doz. it will take = (1.25 X 12)+ 3% = 15.45 Yrds.

Thank u very much. I got my information very clear and it’s best information for me.

Dear Emu Bro

I am clear to understand but little bit problem.when pant use any pocket like cargo pant then how can we calculate. Please kindly replay and 3% wastage is enough for consumption.

Just take general consumption like the pant and multiply with the quantity.

You have to consider Length x width for both sides ie. cargo pkts are 3 dimensional so you have to calculate for pkt face and pkt side also.

Dear Mr.Emu

I am not clear enough.

If u can plz post how to calculate Long pant consumption of 5pkt denim.

Dear Mr. Emu,

I’d like to know why r u taking Hip and waist measurement(both)? if u take only maximum measurement like hip & instead of Bottom, Hip if u take only Hip measurement, can’t it be ok?

Rgds,

Nice & Awesome tips for the new comers. Thanks a lot.

It is absolutely an excellent post. In fact length*width/fabric width*unit is the key law of garments consumption for any portion where you can do it part by part or in one shot.
