Top-stitch close to the edge on the top of the pocket, then top-stitch again at a distance from the first seam.

Now the pocket is ready to be placed over the pants/skirt.

Put the pocket in place and sew close to the edge of the pocket, all around, except the top.

Then sew another seam at a distance from the first one, starting further apart at the top, and going closer to the first seam at the corners.

Backstitch at the start and end of the seam.
