Welcome to a new pattern making class. In today’s class, we are going to make the slanted pocket.
We can find this pocket in different garments such as skirts, trousers and dresses. For today’s class, we are going to make this pocket in trousers.
Today’s class starts by making a classic slanted pocket, this pocket is the one we find in most trousers on the market today.
I will then show you how to modify these patterns to change the quality of the slanted pocket.
Remember that when we change quality, it does not mean that it is better or worse, we have to do it according to the market where we are going to go.
One of the reasons we can change the quality may be that the lining is showing, so we’ll need to add a facing.
Another reason is that the main fabric is very expensive and we need to use less to make the garment profitable.
Next week you will have the class on how to sew these pockets available.
As always, I am going to give you all the standardized measurements to make these samples, but remember that you can change them to your personal taste or that of your client.
You already know that if you have any questions about today’s class, you can send me an email through your user account, in the support section.
Submit your exercises
As I always tell you, the best way to learn pattern making and sewing is by practising, that’s why in today’s class I’m going to ask you to make the samples we’ve made today.
You can make these samples at full size or half scale
Try to send me photos where you can see the patterns, their manufacturing process and the final result in a clear way.
