Abstract

The fused collar components used in shirt manufacturing requires a specific fall and drape that depends on the type of used interlining. The interlining selection is primarily based on the subjective evaluation of fused composites. There is a need to predict the behaviour of fused shirt collars objectively. The drape of fused composites can be indicative of the shape and fall of the shirt collar. The aim of this paper was to propose a set of polynomial equations using DOE that can predict the drape behaviour of fused shirt collars before and after the washing. The Plackett-Burman design was used to screen the influential factors and the full factorial design was used to derive the polynomial equation explaining the effect of factors on the drape behaviour of fused shirting samples. The prediction was attempted with easily measurable parameters of component materials and the fusing process. The study found that the fabric weave, cover factor, raw material, interlining weight and pressure applied during the fusing process have a significant effect on the drape of fused collars. This information can be used in the 3D sampling of fused shirt components.
