I adore pockets. But they always end up taking forever to make. Especially if I do something ridiculous like line them in silk twill:
To sew the pocket front and back together I lined them up, pinned them along the center, then folded them lengthwise and pinned the edges in place. The idea is that this compensates for “turn of cloth” (I love this phrase) and will make the pocket lie nicely on the finished (curved) jacket. Not sure whether this will work.
Whatever possessed me to think I could finish two jackets this month?
