Welcome to a new sewing class, in today’s lesson, I’m going to teach you how to sew an inseam pocket.
This pocket is also known as an invisible pocket since you can only see one seam from the outside of the garment.
Today’s class begins by downloading the patterns for this pocket so we can sew this exercise together.
You can find the patterns just below the video class.
Then we will go on to mark all the notches and I will explain all the patterns and their functions.
Remember that we have to pre-shrink the fabric before cutting it and follow the instructions for each pattern.
For today’s class, I am going to use calico instead of lining to sew this pocket.
Once the patterns have been cut, we will sew the inseam pocket, we will start sewing the back patterns.
The pattern on the back has an extension that works as a facing and that makes sure that we cannot see the lining from the outside.
Next, we will sew the front patterns and then we will close the pocket.
As always in today’s class I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to do this exercise but you will also find them in the patterns.
In today’s class I am going to indicate when to overlock the seam but remember that depending on how you want to finish the garment, the way of overlocking will change.
For example, if your garment will be lined, it is not necessary to overlock at any time, unless we are working with a fabric that frays very easily.
Remember that if you have any questions about today’s class, you can always send me an email through your user account, in the support section.
