|Such cute and easy pockets|
Fashion File 20 is welt pockets. These look so cute on doll clothes. The download contains a pictorial tutorial and the pattern pieces for the pocket. This post is a photo tutorial. Once you have made one you will see how easy it is to do.
I have made a few discoveries along the way.
Firstly, I lined up the top of my template where I wanted the pocket instead of placing the rectangle for the opening level with where I wanted the pocket so the pockets are a fraction too low on my mustard jeans.
Secondly, I cut out the slit before taking the paper template off thinking I needed the guide lines. The paper on top makes it hard to see exactly where you are cutting so take the paper off first. The slit and triangles are easy to work out without having lines to follow. Just make sure you stop and start the slit at least 1/2" from each end then cut longish triangles. You want them to extend into the seam allowance for later.
Now, let's get started.
Use the main paper pattern with the rectangle to position the pocket. I used a pin to mark the position. Place the fabric main piece in place.
