Abstract: The present-day consumer is looking for durability, and comfort in apparel. Sewing is the most used technique to convert two-dimensional fabric into 3-dimensional apparel. Seam performance is an important factor to achieve the durability and comfort of the apparel. Seam efficiency depends not only on sewing parameters but also on fabric type. Ideal combinations of both are important to achieve perfect seam performance and efficiency. How different fabrics perform to specific sewing parameters were reviewed. 
Keywords: Seam performance, Seam efficiency, Seam strength.
