I am passionate about pockets and I love that clothes always have one for the things that I know I am going to use constantly throughout the day, always have them close at hand, for example: house keys, clinex...
When I make a pattern I don't always keep in mind if I'm going to want to include a pocket or not. On some occasions I have it clear from the beginning but on others I don't and I don't put it. When I have put on the garment or have carried the bag for a few days, that is when I see that I could include one. But it's not a problem because since I have the pattern and I'm sure I'm going to replicate the garment on more than one occasion, I can wear it whenever I want and you can do the same.
With these pocket videos you will have the opportunity to learn to sew various types and include them in your patterns whenever you feel like it and in the garments that you think will need them due to the use you are going to give them.
In the video that you are going to see below I am going to teach you how to sew step by step the tailor pocket with double flap or also known as a buttonhole pocket or a double welt pocket is a classic pocket that you will find in many garments or in bags.
TI encourage you to play with the seam afterwards, add other elements and make the pocket to your liking, give it your personality, for example: use another fabric for the plackets and that contrasts with the main fabric, add a buttonhole strip for a button , includes a drawstring between the pocket and the flaps, the possibilities are many and you will surely find one that suits your style.
If you make the pocket in the bags you can include it between the lining and the main fabric and it will not be necessary to polish the bottom seam allowances but if you do it in a garment, as it will be visible, it is better to polish the allowances with a Bias tape so that the garment is polished and well finished on the inside.
And now let's watch the video.
The manufacturing process that you have seen in the video is personal and indicative. This is how I have sewn it but you can include your own solutions or provide new details that do not appear in the video. It is possible that you have sewn it on some occasion and that in some part of the process you have done it differently. All options are valid. I advise you to try several and then decide the one that is most comfortable for you to sew.
