Factors Affecting on Seam Puckering:

There are different key factors which are directly affected on seam puckering, those are mentioned in the below:

  1. Excessive sewing thread tension,
  2. Stretch applied on the fabric,
  3. Shrinkage of sewing thread and fabric,
  4. Feeding mechanism,
  5. Construction of fabric,
  6. Types of fabric,
  7. Types of sewing thread,
  8. Sewing machine types,
  9. Sewing thread behavior.

All the above factors have discussed in the following:

1. Excessive sewing thread tension:

Sewing thread tension has a great impact for producing seam puckering problem in the garments. If sewing thread tension is higher then probability of producing puckering problem in the garments will be higher.

2. Stretch applied on the fabric:

Sometimes extra stretch applied in the fabric during sewing which can produce seam puckering problem in the garments. So, during sewing it should be followed carefully.

3. Shrinkage of sewing thread and fabric:

Shrinkage of both sewing thread and fabric has direct impact for producing seam puckering problem in the garments. So, to get right quality garments, these key points should be followed perfectly.

4. Feeding mechanism:

Feeding mechanism variation can help to produce seam puckering problem in the garments. So, during sewing it should be maintained. Otherwise garments may fail to pass the required quality level

5. Construction of fabric:

Fabric construction has a direct impact on seam puckering. Heavy weighted woven fabrics have most probability for producing puckering problem than light weighted woven fabric.

6. Types of fabric:

Seam puckering problem can be produced in both woven and knitted fabric.

7. Types of sewing thread:

Sewing thread types has a great impact for producing seam puckering problem in the garments.

8. Sewing machine types:

Seam puckering problem can be produced in the garments depending on the types of sewing machine used in the garments.

9. Sewing thread behavior:

Sewing thread behavior is not a minor task for producing seam puckering problem in the garments. Sometimes it helps to produce puckering problem in the garments.

    When the sewing thread shrinkage especially boiling water shrinkage and Thermal Shrinkage is more than the fabric, the sewing thread shrinks and puckering occurs. That is the reason the polyester used for making sewing thread shrinkage should be low shrinkable fibre.

    Low quality sewing thread specially in white, raw spun polyester sewing thread is used. The polyester sewing thread should be bleached white and then it should be used for white fabric. Cotton sewing thread should be mercerised and gassed one.
