Oh how i love pockets! Personally I think pockets are a vital addition to any skirt or dress. They’re not just practical in the sense that they can hold your phone or keys – but they’re also great at giving restless hands a place to sit. I like putting my hands in pockets, it makes me feel less awkward hehe.
The most important think about including pockets in a dress or skirt is the order in which you sew. I have a a specific way i like to do things so everything is neat and all the raw edges get finished. So i’m going to focus on that!
For this tutorial i’m going to be using the Darling Ranges dress and pockets, but you can very easily create your own pocket pattern piece for any dress or skirt by placing your hand on a piece of paper, and tracing around it. Don’t forget to add some wiggle room and also your preferred seam allowance. Ok lets get started!
