Hip-yoke pockets are quick and easy to sew. They are made of three pieces: a front with the pocket opening, the inside pocket piece and the hip yoke with integrated pocket piece. All three should be cut out with seam allowances. On the hip-yoke piece, transfer the marked ATTACHMENT LINE to the right side of the fabric with tailor’s tacks. With right sides together, stitch pocket pieces onto pocket opening. Trim allowances to about ½ cm, snipping into curved sections. Turn pocket inwards. Baste edges and topstitch if desired. Pin pocket opening to meet the attachment line on the hip-yoke piece. Pin outer edges of the pocket to one an other with seam lines meeting and then stitch in place. Neaten/finish seam allowances together. Base upper and side edges of pocket as well as hip yoke and front together.
Tip: If you have a thick fabric for your garment, cut the hip-yoke pocket pieces once in that fabric and once in a lining fabric. Then topstitch the lining pocket piece onto the front edge of the pocket opening.
