19). 18. 19. The Sleeve: Patterns for sleeve linings allow for simple modifications because the major part of their length is concealed. These modifications fall into two categories: (1) Joins – most companies accept that joins in the width of a sleeve lining are necessary in order to prevent excessive waste. When the pattern cutter sees that there is an advantage in joining a sleeve pattern, proper patterns for the joined parts should be prepared instead of relying on the marker planner to establish the join line, add seam allowances and mark sewing alignment nips.

By using these marks the pattern cutter is able, at an early stage, to evaluate which pattern modifications would be viable. Some of the possible modifications are given here. Skirt Linings Conventionally, skirt lining patterns are positioned in cutting markers according to the warp grain line of the material. If folded lining is used, this pattern arrangement generally leads to a relatively high percentage of marker waste. All clothing industry professionals know that materials utilisation is higher on open materials than on folded materials, and linings are no exception.

This provides an excellent opportunity for the pattern cutter to maximise the potential for tightly interlocking components, which has two benefits: Waste is decreased because the spaces between components are reduced or completely eliminated. When, say, two components are completely interlocked by means of a common line, then only one line instead of two has to be cut to separate components – a small but worthwhile saving of labour. Unlike pattern modifications to top cloth components, there is only one question to be asked regarding the form of a pattern for a fusible interlining: If the fusible interlining is not intended to completely cover the cloth component, then is the form of the edges of the fusible interlining – which do not have to align with the edges of the component – important?
