I have a quick and easy tutorial today that will leave the inside of your garment nice and tidy, even after adding pockets! I think I love pockets as much as my girls, but I am NOT a fan of serging around those curves. As I was sewing the Leiden High Low Top, I decided to take pictures along the way to share with you!
Step 1: Once you have your pockets attached on the skirt sides (per the tutorial), place your front skirt and back skirt WRONG sides together. Reduce your seam allowance to 1/4". Sew along the side seam, pivot around the pocket, and continue down the remainder of the side seam.
Step 2: Trim seam allowance down to 1/8". Be sure to clip into the pocket corners as well (not shown).
Step 3: Turn fabric inside out so RIGHT sides are now touching. Using your fingers, gently roll the seam to the outer edge. Press well. Sew along the outer edge with 1/4" seam allowance to fully enclose the first seam.
Step 4: Press pocket/side seam toward front skirt. Repeat with other pocket/side.
That's it! Now you have nice and tidy pockets!
