Fabric consumption per dozen of a full shirt:
Considering medium size (M) for calculation-
Body Section: (body length+allowance) × (1/2 chest+allowance) × 2
= ( 74cm+5cm) × (55cm+5cm) × 2 = 79cm × 60cm × 2 = 9480 sq. cm.
Sleeve Section:(sleeve length+allowance) × (arm hole straight+allowance) × 2 × 2
=(65cm+4cm) × (23cm+3cm) × 4 = 69 cm × 26cm × 4 = 7176 sq. cm.
Collar & Collar Band: (collar band length+allowance) × (collar band+collar point+allowance) × 2

= 149.07cm = 1.49m = 1.5m/Pc.
S = 2×1.48 m = 2.96 m
M = 3×1.50 m = 4.50 m
L = 3×1.52 m = 4.56 m
