Seam Properties and Sewability of Crease Resistant Shirt Fabrics
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of crease resistant treatment on sewability and seam properties of cotton shirt fabrics. The effects of the fabric construction (plain, twill, and satin weaves), the concentration of crease resistant chemical, and the stitch density were investigated in terms of seam quality and sewability. Seam efficiency was calculated and the appearance of seams and creases were evaluated using standard methods. Furthermore, the sewability of the fabrics was measured with an L&M sewability tester. The results were then statistically evaluated. It was found that crease resistant treatment improved the seam efficiency, sewability, and appearance of creases, whereas no positive effect on seam appearance was observed.
