CUSTOM PATTERN MAKER - UNEVEN SEAM ALLOWENCE HOW TO

STRAIGHT-GRAIN-SYMBOL

Creating Seam Allowences is almost an instant process:
Use the OFFSET command under the EDIT menu to draw the seam allowances.

  • SELECT the command OFFSET
  • SELECT the line you want to offset with the cursor
  • Click ENTER to stop SELECTing
  • TYPE in the size of the width of the seam allowence and ENTER
  • Show the computer which side of the seam line to offset by clicking the cursor on the outside of the pattern piece
  • Click ENTER to stop offsetting.


If you want uneven seam allowance:
  • Draw extension lines, using the SNAPTO sub-functions INTersection, NEARest, and PERPendicular, from the narrower width to the wider width.
  • Use those lines as TRIM lines and use TRIM under the EDIT menu to TRIM away the unwanted seam allowance.
