Popular Pockets...Free Patterns for you!

Sunday, October 12, 2008

Some of my most popular shirts have featured my "Cigar Pocket"
and the "Angle Edge Pocket".

I get many questions about them, so while I had these pocket patterns out on the cutting table, I snapped this pic to share them with you. As you can see below, the dimensions are shown on a grid. The pocket hems are meant to have a double turn of 1", and are drafted with a 3/8" seam allowance. On the "Cigar Pocket", a one-inch slot is made by topstitching the pocket on the straight side, after the pocket is sewn to the shirt.

Starting with Ottobre patterns, and modifying them to include my own design details, this outfit will make a nice addition to Willow's fall wardrobe.

Sewing Notes: Black Denim fabric from GORGEOUS FABRICS. Cotton knit fabric from Fabric Bliss. Pro-Weft Fusible Interfacing in black from ~Fashion Sewing Supply~ used in waistband. Eyelet twill tape from Lucy's.
