How to Sew a Pocket on Skirt

 

And here you can see how you’re doing the right denim-style pockets on the front of the skirt:

First, draw the pattern parts for the pockets:

I use my modified apron. I’ve already made changes to the contoured waistband and button closure. I’ve taken the little incision that was left after I that I had created the contoured waistband, away in the side seam.

  1. Character Pocket opening on front piece. The pocket of my apron do I plot 11 cm wide, and 7 cm high. In this case, I would like to have a rounded pockets, so I draw a curve.
  2. draw Pocket plate (the part of the Pocket, clipped in denim) as follows: Character Pocket opening and the top of the skirt of a new piece of pattern paper. Put ca. 2.5 cm for the bottom of the Pocket plate. Remember to draw where the Pocket opening is.
  3. draw the inner pocket bag: Select on front piece where far into the waist and how far down in the side seam Pocket bag must go. Put a new piece of pattern paper on and signs along the waist (approx. 14 cm), down along the side seam (ca. 17 cm) and Pocket opening. Connect the endpoint at the waist with the endpoint in the side seam with a nice curve.
  4. draw the outer pocket bag: Make a copy of the inner pocket pouch and clip along Pocket opening.
  5. Make front piece finished. Clip along the Pocket opening.
  6. Then you are finished! You just need to attach the seam allowance on the pattern parts or remember to add them to when you cut the fabric. I recommend 1.5 cm seam allowance.

Remember to write pattern, size and description (Pocket badge, outer pocket bag and inner pocket bag) on pattern parts.

Then the fabric is cut.

Cut 2 x Pocket badge in denim, 2 x outer pocket pouch and 2 x inner pocket bag in foerstof (it can be a soft thin woven URf.eks. cotton. I like to use scraps of liberty fabric;-)) And then of course front, backs, any wear pieces and linnings pieces of denim.

How to sew you pockets:

Pockets stitched as it first – before you SEW something of the second together.

  1. Exit the edges of Pocket plate, URf.eks. with a overlocksøm. Place the Pocket plate on the inner pocket bag, purl towards the right. sew down all around out in the seam allowance.
  2. Put the outer pocket bag on front piece along Pocket opening, right against the right. Sew along Pocket opening.
  3. Clip seam allowance down to approx. 4 mm (URf.eks. with a thank scissors) and pressure the seam.
  4. Turn pocket bag on to the purl side and pressure. Make sure that you just can see 1 mm of the Outer fabric on the purl side of the Pocket opening.
  5. sew topstitching along Pocket opening.
  6. Attach the outer pocket bag and the inner pocket bag (with Pocket door hanger on) together along the curved seam and stitch them together on your overlocker. If you do not have an overlocker, you must exit the edges before you sew them together. You can URf.eks. use a zigzag or a good thank scissors.

RI Pocket bags lay along the waist and side seam (to keep them in place during the stitching) by sewing in the seam allowance.

And then you are ready to sew the rest of your skirt – now with pockets. Enjoy!

In Heartattackskirts we also show how you can take your basic pattern for the skirt and make design changes so you get a denim skirt in cool jeans-style. A skirt with jeans wear pieces, pockets, waistband and button closure.
