Pants - front pocket


The pocket in the front is ready. I started with Ann's instructions for the Vogue pants. But somewhere I  was lost (the reason is most probably me, not the instructions by Ann), and I went on following my own sewing sense. When I was ready I was not satisfied by the result. Uneven and the topstitching in one corner was 1 stitch off.

Time for the seam ripper, I'm not one for sewing without mistakes. And I couldn't let go of this and go on.

So, an hour later, this is the pocket. It's in the same location as the first one, I unpicked all. This is how it should be, I'm satisfied with the result, so I basted it in place for further construction.

I used lightweight fusible interfacing where the welt is sewn. And because I cut the welt on the bias, I interfaced the welt to prevent stretching.

  1. Much better! The time spent ripping and remaking was well spent. The second pocket looks as good or better than RTW. I wouldn't have been able to leave the first version, either.

  2. A woman after my own heart:)) Beautiful job.

  3. Your perfectionism and patience really paid off. The pocket looks great.

  4. Yup, I would have had to rip it out too. The second one looks perfect!
