When I made my "new dress", I was very keen on putting in pockets. Who doesn't like pockets? I was a little hesitant, but I knew I had to venture into unknown territory. I quickly searched through Pinterest to find a pocket tutorial. There were so many, but this one was the best! It has all the tutorials for different types of pockets.
I opted for the in-seam pocket for my dress.
But first where did I get my pockets from? The sleeves from the old top I used for the dress. This tute shows you how to add pockets to a dress / skirt already in your wardrobe!
Lay your "pockets" onto the dress and, using a fabric pen, make a small mark as to where the pockets will be. If you're not sure, wear the dress and get someone to mark it for you!
|Tip: Place sleeve rough side out, place at opening and|
punch it in so that the smooth side is now on the outside!
