14. JOINING EXPLODED CURVED LINES BACK TOGETHER WITH PEDIT COMMAND
Use PLINE to fill in the gaps between seam segments. Select the first point using the SNAPTO sub-command END(OF) and then place the CROSS-HAIRS on the end of the seam line on one side of the gap. Use the SNAPTO sub-command END(OF) and place the cross-hair on the end of the seam line on the other side of the gap.
NOTE: All the curve lines are made up of many short little "dashes" of lines, so the EXPLODE commands causes necklines, armholes and other curves to become many tiny segments. The easiest way to connect them back together is use a W(INDOW) to select the entire curve when using J(OIN) under the PEDIT command (further description of PEDIT to follow in section 11)
15. USE THE PEDIT COMMAND TO JOIN ALL THE PATTERN SEGMENTS TOGETHER
After you have created all your seam lines as you desire them to appear, you need to use the command PEDIT to join all the segments into a continuous seam line. PEDIT (stands for Polyline edit) is a command that has a long string and sub-string of command functions. It has it's own sub-menu in C.P.M. under PEDIT under the EDIT MENU. The sub-function you will use the most is J(OIN).
