    I have a lounge pant pattern that includes these pockets. They really are easy. I would like to say, though, if you are using a heavy cotton fabric (such as flannel), please consider using a lighter weight fabric for the pocket lining, as they do better in the dryer.

    Where do you actually download the pattern and the video from? I downloaded the instructions, but can’t seem to find the pattern. Thanks!

    My three year old asked for pockets in the nightgown/costume I am making for her. And I was able to make them easily! I even made French seams on the side seams with the pockets. (I don’t have a serger and I dislike zigzagged edges)

    ’Just accomplished in-seam pockets on the Shari!! It works!! (Saving my “pocket pattern” forever, though!)

    I’m not usually this free with the exclaimation points!

    The seam allowance is 5/8" so its easy to line up when placing the pocket, but sewn at 3/8" so that the pocket is pulled to the inside when finished. Its not necessary, but I think it is easier.

    When I was little, 50 years ago, my mom always put “secret pockets” in my dresses.

    one question … why did you only sew the seam allowancce at 3/8 when you drafted the pattern with a 5/8 seam allowance? or am i mistaken?

      you sew the pocket to dress seam allowance at 3/8 so that the seam between the pocket and dress is hidden inside the pocket. keeps things neater and keeps the seam allowances to not meet and be extra thick at the top and bottom edges.

    Katrena- I didn’t notice them until now, but good job! I guess not noticing them is a good thing, since they’re inseam pockets! And thanks to everyone else- I’m glad this How To is helpful and easy to understand!

    great how-to, also as idea-generator: I’ll put in an in-seam pocket in my Zoe-in-process, perfect for taking with me my badge & money to luch at the office.
