Quick Tips For Pockets

An easy and quick way to make pockets on your slacks, skirts or dresses, is to pin the pocket piece to the front and back pattern pieces, aligning the pocket pieces to the markings on the pattern.  Now that the pocket is pinned to the front and back pieces, cut the pattern all in one piece.  When you sew the side seams, you’ll simply sew up to the pocket, sew around the pocket, and continue the rest of the seam.
