This How To illustrates how to make a pattern for inseam pockets, that you can add to almost any garments!! These pockets are stylish, barely visibly, and extremely handy!
Start with your pattern. I am illustrating this with a t-shirt pattern which I changed into a dress (which you will all see soon!). Mark a notch where you want the top of your pocket to be. Here I have added a low pocket, which is about 6" (15 cm) from the waist. A standard pocket is a bit higher- about 3 to 4" (8 to 10 cm) below the waist. Make the same marking on both the front and back of the pieces. When you cut out these pieces, be sure to mark these points with a notch.
