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!

A Happy New Year to all! I was hoping that I might have caught up with myself by now! But I haven’t! I have a couple of posts for pocket constructions that I had almost completed, when I was making up student sample garments back in August/September so here is one of them.

The photo below shows a side seam pocket in a panelled seam of a dress. These pockets are not stitched by me! I quite often forget to take a before or after picture, but I want to be clear about the type of pocket that I’m describing, and it’s order of assembly.


This is my preferred way to make up pockets that sit in the side seam.  I know there are other ways of sewing these, but this is how they were produced in the factory and this method gives defined, structured edges and doesn’t waste fabric!
