The best way for pockets to lie flat and invisible is if they are cut separate from your pattern. If they are attached on the pattern piece, simply cut them separately, adding your 5/8" seam allowance to your garment and the pocket. If draw pockets are not included in your pattern but you wish to add them (like I do) simply follow an online pattern. With rights side together, sew each side of the pocket to the garment. Make sure to place them at identical positions so they can fit together in the next step.
