Abstract

Although fabric properties can be related to seam pucker, the aesthetic judgement is still left to subjective assessment which is based on ranking the stitched fabric samples by judges having compared them with photographic standards. The development of a new measuring procedure which is based on computer vision is reported. This procedure is objective and is focused on the aesthetic property of the seam assembly. This work has been used in conjunction with objective measurement of fabric properties for predicting seam pucker and sewing machine dynamics for optimisation of sewing machinery settings and for the manufacture of lightweight synthetic materials.
