Add A Pocket To Your Clothes, Here’s How To Sew It!

Many think that only the seamstresses are able to add a pocket to the various garments, actually using the right equipment is very simple. The pockets represent design elements that enrich every sartorial package: jackets, jeans shirts but also dresses. In this tutorial, we will see some tricks to add perfect pockets to each garment, using a specific kit that allows you to cut the right shape and fold it in the most critical points with precision. The second shape in the kit allows you to obtain two finished pockets that are perfect for sewing on a shirt, simply by using an iron to draw the edges. The main types of pocket that can be made are three: the small pocket, it is made simply with a single seam and is suitable for shirts. The second is the pocket for the jeans, equipped with rivets pointed at pressure and stitching no longer single but double, also achievable without much effort.

Finally the jacket pocket, with rounded bottom, which recalls the typical design of the most famous chanel packaging, is equipped with basting that collects the bottom, which however must not be removed, but remains invisible in the inner part of the pocket. Materials required: – set for marking and sewing the pockets, – black stitching thread and sewing thread, – rotary cutter, – top suitable for cutting, – cotton fabric, – pen suitable for use on erasable fabrics, – set for apply pressure buttons, – iron, – pins. Sew the pocket: first method Creating shirt pockets is very simple, just use cotton and the special kit to make the package.

To start, you have to work on the fabric upside down, using the scheme for medium-sized pockets, and draw the contours on it, with the erasable water pen, both in the outer margin and inside the hatches. Cut the shape thus obtained with the rotay cutter, using a ruler to be more precise and straight. Now, it’s time to use the smaller shape of the kit, the one that can be ironed, just fold the edges on the shape and stretch them, in a practical and fast way, always working on the side of the back and flattening the edges well. Once the first part is finished, it is possible to fold the shape on the hatch and place it on the obverse of the back, to fold the upper edge outwards, tapping it with small needles.

The fallback must be turned back inwards to create the finished pocket, pinning it with pins, it is possible to start sewing it on the shirt, simply by pinning it in the desired position. Second method: Creating a jeans pocket is just as easy using the pocket kit. Work on the wrong side of the fabric and draw the outlines of the larger outline of the kit, both the external and the dashed internal ones, cut the edges precisely with the rotary cutter and the help of a line. With the smaller ironing shape, fold the dashed edges onto it and flatten them well with the iron following all sides.

Turn The Fabric on the right side and, resting the folded shape along the hatch, create the flap, folding the upper edge outwards and pinning it well with needles. With mustard-colored thread, like the one used for jeans bought, I create two parallel seams with a straight stitch. Finally, to insert the rivets, just make holes in the jeans with a pair of pliers and fix them with the special pressure machine. Now it is possible to apply the pocket thus created on the jeans, it will appear perfect and precise, as if it had been made by a real seamstress. Third method: The third tutorial is dedicated to those fabrics that tend to slide out, making it difficult to create the pocket. Here then it is enough a small trick to solve the problem, it is sufficient to apply the fliseline, a semi-transparent fabric on the side of the back, stretching it well on the fabric, and proceed to the creation of the pocket working on the latter. The large shape of the kit is used to create the pocket, redesigning the contours on the fliseline, even the dashed internal ones, with the water-specific pen for fabrics. Proceed as before, cutting off the excess edges with the rotary cutter and using a ruler to be precise. Now, with the smaller ironing shape, just fold and stretch the outer edges to create the pocket.

As for the upper edge, just fold it outwards using the folded-out reference as a reference and fix it with needles to get a Perfect Turn-Up.

 

To sew this type of fallback, as the fabric is thick, the eyelet thread is required, much larger than the traditional one. The procedure is very similar to the one used for basting, you have to pull the thread a little to gather the fabric well and make it stand up well. Close the basting in the upper part with an underlay, perfect for fixing the fallback. The basting must not be eliminated, it remains invisible under the pocket, it is therefore possible to proceed with the application on the jacket, sewing it well, applying a jewel button for a more sophisticated result.
