Keywords: Sewing thread, shirting fabrics, seam pucker grade


Quality & aesthetics of the garment are evaluated through the seam pucker as the most interested character by customer and manufacturer. Among many parameters influencing on seam pucker such as sewing machine, sewing methods, sewing parameters, fabrics to be sewn, environmental conditions etc. sewing thread with different properties plays considerable role in creating seam pucker. This article investigates the properties of 5 common sewing threads used on 3 light and medium fabrics (99, 105 và 112 g/m2) for export order at Garment No.10 & Duc Giang Garment Co. Ltd., determines the seam pucker and finally sdudies the influence of sewing thread properties on seam pucker
