    HOW TO MAKE POCKETS IN A SEAM

     

    HOW TO MAKE POCKETS IN A SEAM

     

    This is a technique that cannot only be applied to any garment that you're making (provided it has a side seam), but you could even add side seam pockets to any existing garments by unpicking the side seams.

    Cut out 2 pairs of pocket bag pieces. Take one of your pocket bag pieces and lay it, right sides together, onto your front garment piece (lining up the notches). Stitch the pocket pieces into place with a 1.2cm seam allowance. This is so that when we close the side seams, the pockets will sit slightly inside, for a more discreet finish.
    Repeat this on your back garment piece. 

     

    Turn the pocket pieces out, and press.

     

    Now place the back piece onto your front piece, right sides together, and pin down the side seams and all around the pockets pieces.


     

    Close the side seams with a 1.5cm seam allowance, pivoting when you get to the top of the pocket, stitching the two pocket pieces together, then continuing down the rest of the side seam, using the image below as a guide.


    Finish raw edges of pocket bag and press the side seam towards the front.
