E+M Patterns & Adding Pockets to No.19

This sweet little dress by E+M Patterns was just released and Allison thought it would be fun to give all of you something a little here it is, a fun little pocket pattern that can be added to Dress Pattern No.19 or just about any other E+M pattern. Fun right!

These pockets were desinged to match the neckline with the ties and keyhole.

This is what you need for this project:

Print out the pattern piece, and cut out or trace the size needed for your dress.
Cut 2 pockets pieces of the fabric and mark the bottom of the pockets for the gathers

Use a long stitch between the 2 markings.

Pull the bobbin thread to gather the fabric.

Pin bias to the outside edges of the pocket. Stitch into place.

Pin bias to the cut out edge of the pocket. Stitch into place.

Pin bias to the top edge of pocket. Stitch into place. You'll want to have at least a 7 inch overhang for the ties.

Tie the ends into a bow. Now you're ready to place the pockets on the the dress.

Its better to put the pockets on before assembling the dress. For the size 4, the pockets were placed 2 inches from the side and 3 inches from the top of the raw edge of the skirt. Pin into place and edge stitch the pocket into place. 

Now you can assemble the dress as indicated in the pattern tutorial.

Until next time, xx.
