Splice marks can be of two kinds
1. STRAIGHT SPLICES:
A straight splice line is marked across the marker width on the spreading table. This is used in cases where pattern pieces meet edge to edge across the fabric width, with no pieces sticking out of the straight line. For this method, the fabric is overlapped, 5cm on either side of the splicing line.
2. INTERLOCK SPLICES:
In this splicing method, crossed diagonal lines are marked on the table to keep it easily differentiated from the straight splice marks. These crossed marks indicate the ends of the pattern pieces overlapping on the marker. The start and finish of the pattern pieces sticking put are marked with two splice lines, and the fabric is overlapped 5cm on both sides of interlock splice mark.
