Pockets: how I cheated the sewing gods
Few things in the sewing world scare me more than zippers and pockets. They seem really complicated. Perhaps I just need someone to teach me how to sew both of those things so I’ll know what the hell I’m doing, but in the meantime, they scare the poop out of me. When someone asks me something like “Do you have any aprons with pockets?” a shiver runs up and down my spine.
Damn you, pockets. Damn you and all you stand for.
But I really wanted to try making an apron with the aforementioned shiver-inducing pockets. So I totally cheated.
Five vertical panels with pockets that I sewed in while I was sewing the panels together.
I can’t take credit for this idea. I saw something similar at Anthropologie.
So I’ve halfway overcome my pocket fear, although zippers are still another story. If anyone has any advice or knows of a good tutorial for sewing “real” pockets, please let me know!
