How to Make the Perfect Unlined Patch Pocket
"We are going to be learning how to sew an unlined patch or “applied pockets” as they are professionally known. Pockets are classified in three categories: inseam, slashed and applied pockets and of course, there are variations and combinations of them all so it can be confusing. This series of tutorial is designed to help. A patch pocket, as the name implies, is a separate piece of fabric that is applied to the right side of the fabric. Done properly it will give your garment a look of professionalism and of course practicality. The patch pocket is also an excellent way to separate your design from the rest. In this tutorial, I will be showing you the most basic of the applied pockets. The following tutorial is for cotton fabric, linen, canvas and denim and a combination of them. This type of pockets is not for loosely woven fabrics because the pocket will gape at the opening."
