Abstract:

The objective of this study is to investigate the impact of sewing thread types and stitch types on seam strength and efficiency of superimposed seam for pc blended apparel. An experimental stylisme was used for the study including four types of thread and two stitch classes for pc blended apparel. The performance properties were seam strength and efficiency which is investigated. The seam strength and efficiency of the fabric were determined by using the tensile testing machine. Inferential statistics (Analysis of Variance at 0.05 alpha levels) were used for data analysis. The results of this experiment showed that differences existed between the four thread types with regard to seam strength and efficiency, Polyester-wrapped thread with a polyester filament core thread shows better seam strength and Seam Efficiency in four stitch types than other for pc blended fabrics. The current study has revealed the behavior of seams in the different stitch and threads of Polyester cotton blended fabric. Analysis of Variance(One-way) at 0.05 alpha levels) were employed in testing the hypotheses since they are measures used in measuring differences, and the purpose of this study was to establish if any difference existed between and among the stitch types of same class and thread types which was involved in the study. Finally this research will have a scope to search the best sewing thread in terms of stitch types with high seam performance as well as for the development of our apparel sector.
