Fabric cost of a product depends what proportion fabric ls consumed to form the garment including cut wastes and end bits. So fabric consumption must to be calculated accurately

Most of the Indian apparel factories fabric consumption is formed by pattern masters. remainder of the workers don’t bother how it’s done.

In following one example has been shown with formula for better clarification about the caiculation.

Basic formula:
To estimate fabric consumption for a knitted top use following formula. Consumption in grams: {(L*C) + (C*SL)}*2″I‘GSM/10000 grams (when length units are In centimeter)
C= Chest + Allowance
L=Length of the body Measure +allowance
SL=Sleeve Length + Allowance
B=Biceps + Allowance
Gsm=Fabric weight in grams per sm
Example: Product-knit top.Garments components are front, back and sleeves.
Mesurements without allwances
Mesurement with allowances
Chest= 23.25”
Body length=30.5”
Sleeve length=26”
Fabric GSM=200

As Per above formula consumption 
    [(Length*Chest)+(Biceps*Sleeve Length)]*2*GSM
=   ___________________________________________ Grams
 = _____________________________________Grams
Note :2.54 is inch to cm convert factor
 =  ____________________ Grams
=354.83 Grams
