Really missed you-a lot.
A combination of lots of sewing,harvest starting and a maxed out internet connection has left little chance for showing and telling.
A good month back I went on a school uniform sewing spree and made Hugo new polos and Tilly and the Twins navy bottoms.
The Finch shorts are a bit of a favourite in our home. I blogged the construction here and then went on to line them here.
|Finch top&shorts lined|
I also decided to stitch in the front pleat to save some time ironing.
To add a pocket you will need a pattern piece from an existing pattern,I used mine from the oliver+s PlayDate dress.
Neaten this seam now.
Stitch the other pocket bag to the back making sure the sides are matching if you are only adding one pocket!
Check,then check again.
Yes,I stitched them on opposite sides......
Low enough to be comfortable not too low as to poke out the bottom of the shorts.
Pin the front and back pieces together drawing in the stitching lines can be helpful.
Before neatening,clip into seam allowance where the pocket joins the shorts but not through it.
This will give ease and allow the seam to spread out during neatening.
Super snappy for school.
And if you need any further inspiration.....
