Attaching a Piece

The Attach feature allows you to attach one pattern piece to another without having to stitch the pieces together. Because you are attaching a pattern piece, that pattern piece can be fully configured as with other pattern pieces. For example, you can assign seam material to the edges. The Attach feature is a quick way of, for example, adding pockets to a garment.

  • 3D trim assigned

  • Intersection fill

  • Lotta artwork assigned

  • Pleats

  • Smart Zipper assigned

  • Stitching (or internal lines or points with stitches)

  • Symmetry - full or inner
