Welcome to a new pattern making class. In today’s class, you will learn how to make a patch pocket.
There are several ways to make these pockets; it all depends on the method you are learning and the quality you want to apply to your pockets.
In today’s class, you will also learn the different ways to mark the pocket to our patterns and the reason behind it.
We will start today’s class with the pointed patch pocket, where we will put into practice more industrial methods.
We will then move on to making a lined round patch pocket, where we will practice some more luxury focused methods.
Then we will make a square pocket with embellishment, you will have seen these pockets in jeans thousands of times.
To finish we will make an inverted pleat pocket.
Unlike most of my classes where I work at half scale, in today’s class, we are going to do the pockets at full scale.
Next week you will have the class on how to sew all these pockets available.
Remember that all the measures that I give you are standard measures but you can change them to your personal taste or that of your client.
As always, if you have any questions about this class, you can send me an email through your user account, in the support section.
Submit your exercises
You already know that the best way to learn pattern making and sewing is by practising, for today’s class I am going to ask you to make the 4 pockets that you have learned today.
Try to send me photos where you can see the patterns, their sewing process and the final result in a clear way.
As always, you can send me these exercises at full size or half scale, although for this exercise I recommend that you send it to me at full size.
Send me these exercises through the patch pocket pattern making class.
