how to sew pants: pockets


here are the next steps for the pants, you can see my pattern construction here: part1 and part2.

DSCF6157I pinned the facing right side on right side on the pockets

DSCF6158sewed and serged

DSCF6159then I folded the facing over on the wrong side


DSCF6161and ironed it a little inward

DSCF6162now I served all around the open edges of the pockets and then ironed the seam allowance at front and bottom onto the wrong side

DSCF6163then pinned the pockets onto the front parts

DSCF6164and sewed close and parallel to the edges.

I hope this was helpful for you, let me know if you have any questions left!

keep sewing and smiling

  1. I wanted to pin it but I didn’t see a Pin button. I have a pants board and I collect all these goodies like your post for when I make pants again! I’ll bookmark it, great tute.
