Welcome to a new sewing class, in today’s class I am going to teach you how to sew a slanted pocket.
In the previous class, we already learned how to make the slanted pocket patterns and how to modify them if we wanted different qualities.
In today’s class, we start by making the most common slanted pocket that we can find today in the market.
Then we will go on to make the different qualities that we learned in the previous class.
As I explained to you, the different qualities are not better or worse, it is simply different finishes that we can do for different reasons.
For example, if the fabric is rough and we have to prevent it from touching your skin so you can wear that garment in a much more comfortable way.
Remember to pre-shrink the fabric before cutting the patterns, to make sure that when you iron it, it doesn’t shrink.
In today’s class, I talk about understitching, if you don’t remember, you have a class on how to do it.
As in most of my sewing classes, I’m going to use a contrasting thread so you can see better what I’m doing.
As always, if you have any questions about today’s class, remember that you can send me an email through your user account, in the support section.
Submit your exercises
The best way to learn pattern making and sewing are by practising, so for today’s class, I am going to ask you to send me the 2 pocket samples that we have made today.
Remember that this class is linked to the slanted pocket pattern making class, so remember to also send me the photos of the patterns, as well as the one of your sewing process and the final result.
As you already know, you can do this exercise at full size or at half scale.
Please try to send me clear photos so that I can give you better feedback.
