• Are You Wast­ing Fab­ric While Splic­ing?

Splic­ing is the tech­nique used in the cut­ting room dur­ing the process of spread­ing. It ba­si­cally in­cor­po­rates cut­ting the fab­ric across its width to over­lap lay­ers in be­tween the ends of the lay. It can be used for dif­fer­ent rea­sons:

1. Firstly, to ac­com­mo­date for fab­ric de­fects, pre­vent­ing

any fi­nal cut pieces from the de­fec­tive part of the fab­ric. 2. Splic­ing is also used when the fab­ric roll be­ing spread ends in the mid­dle of the marker, and the end bit length is suf­fi­cient to cut one com­plete gar­ment piece.

3. Lastly, it is used when there is a change in the size, i.e. the pat­tern pieces of each size have not been mixed in the marker (e.g. on step mark­ers).

Hence, splic­ing can sim­ply be un­der­stood as the process of over­lap­ping the cut ends of two fab­ric pieces to en­sure con­tin­u­ous spread­ing. When splic­ing fab­rics, a splic­ing line should be se­lected, mak­ing sure that none of the pat­terns on the marker is cut in­com­plete. So the po­si­tion of splic­ing is cru­cial, and it de­pends on the fab­ric qual­ity and the marker. Splice Marks are used (as marked points) in the marker where fab­rics can be cut and the next piece can be over­lapped to main­tain a con­tin­u­ous lay spread. To keep the splices ac­cu­rate, mark­ings on both the sides of the marker should be done.
