Leah tunic Part 4: pockets
April 7, 2011 By 15 Comments
First I cut out a pocket pattern-I adapted this pattern.
Then I used some more bias tape for the tops.
First I folded it over, right sides together, and sewed down, and then backstitched up. (same technique as the binding for the collar)
Then I measured 4 inches, marked that, and sewed that end the same way, on the mark.
I serged around the curved part of the pockets, then pressed the edges in like this.
Then I gathered the tops of the pockets, and fit them in the bias tape. Pinned, and sewed the bias tape on.
Then I placed my pockets, using a ruler to make sure they were even.
and sewed them on around the edge! I back stitched on the tops where the pockets will get the most wear and tear.
Lastly, hem the bottom…..
Sew on your button….
…and you’re done!
Try it on your cutie, and revel or bask in the glory of it all.
