Linetypes - beyond the box?

I am working on some soft goods and would like to style the lines so that I can easier see what they are, zipper, cut, fold, topstitch etc. The settings for Linetype are very basic, to say the least, is there some way to create lintypes that are more advanced? Or is there an other way to do what I want? I am thinking something along the lines of Illustrators Brushes or Graphic styles. The result will be output as 2d patterns and will not be rendered, so no need for anything fancy. A line that is easily distinguishable is good enough.
