Week 2 of the Sewn Square One Sew Along is up on the Sew News blog and you can find it HERE.
This week, I cover a few aspects about the pattern, but the post is primarily about the pockets.
Take a look at the jacket from the pattern cover. Due to the nature of the design, the pocket is quite shallow. You might have also noticed that the jacket in the pattern photo looks shorter than mine. It is.The pattern instructs you to hem the jacket. We will go over this in more detail once we are finishing up the jacket, but I did not put a traditional hem in my jacket. With the jacket turned inside out, I sewed a seam along the bottom of the jacket and then turned it right side out. So there is only a seam allowance at the hem of my jacket.
As I said, this week's post is primarily about sewing in the pockets. It's really quite a lovely design, with the curved princess line seam.
If you are new to sewing, and even if you aren't, you may find pockets a little daunting. Just take the process step by step and you'll have a lovely pocket.
The pocket patterns are quite shallow for this jacket, even the longer versions. In the instructions, I show you how I made a longer pocket. Since I am making the longer version of the coat, there's plenty of room for a nice roomy pocket.
My finished pocket.
