Pockets that sit in the side seam

One of my sewing buddies, if I may call her that (her real name is Linda at Remake Remodel Recycle) has given me a wonderful new way to do side seam pockets. I vaguely remember doing them like this once, but have since forgotten the details. I have reblogged it here as it is lovely!

  1. In my early days of sewing I used to use these pockets a lot, my talents weren’t great back then but they are so useful to keep hankies in!

    I am intrigued by your header image where is it?

    1. That image is inside the Calgary Stampede Costume/sewing room. I think my category cloud (on the right? Depending what you view this blog on, has a category “Calgary Stampede”) with a full post with more photos. I had insiders (my sister and brother in law) give me a tour! 😍 I’ve never seen anything like it before!

      1. It looks amazing!

        1. I was amazed! Totally speechless!

  2. Thank you for sharing this. It’s a little different from the way I do it, so I shall try this way next time!

    1. I always like trying something new too!

  3. Oh! What an interesting way to do this! I’ll try it next time around. Thanks for the tip!

    1. Yes, thank you Linda of Remake Remodel Recycle!

  4. This is a great how-to; thank you for sharing it!

    1. You’re welcome! I’m happy I found it!

  5. Really useful, thank you!

  6. My first pair of pants is on the list, maybe after the initial (more simple) pair, I’ll move up to pockets. And then I’ll try this method! 🙂

    1. I’m looking toward to it! I’ll have to try this next time too!

  7. Great tips, thanks for sharing!

  8. Very nice. I don’t sew but the pockets are very flat. You need to make another pair of pants and show us this method too. 😊 Cheers.

    1. Yes, I’d forgotten about this way. Linda at Remake Remodel Recycle did the blog post and reminded me.

  9. Thanks for sharing. That’s a great way to do it. I always get so caught up in making the actual clothing I forget about things like pockets!!!

    1. I know… I’m kind of full steam ahead and then it’s where does this extra piece go? 🙂

      1. Haha I’m more of a make it up as you go sewer so it’s not till I have something bought on that I think – here, this is useful having these pockets!… Hehe
