An investigation with regards to the different mechanical properties of sewing threads that affect the seam quality is presented, as well as how to identify the interrelation between the seam's serviceability and appearance. This property is of concern as the fabric is the prime raw material in apparel industry which will reflect the fabric's quality which is one of the primary requirements for production of high seam quality in apparel. Another factor that affects the seam quality is the sewing thread. Thus, the seam quality depends on the sewing thread properties. These properties are the tensile, bending properties, dimensional stability, and friction on the fibers used.
