How to Sew Inseam Pockets | Easiest Way to Sew Pockets


Hey guys, welcome back to my channel.
Today in our A to Z sewing techniques series we’re going to be focusing on how
to sew inseam pockets. The first thing we’re going to do is match up our pockets to our side seams with right sides together and we’re going to stitch
our pockets down with whatever seam allowance our side seam calls for.
Once you’ve sewn both pocket bags go ahead and give them a good press in the
opposite direction and attach your pocket to your side seam seam allowance by giving it a 1/4″ top stitch along that pocket edge this extra stitch will help keep your pocket bag from trying to slip out whenever you are
wearing your garment now we can start sewing our side seam & our pocket bag together starting at the top of our seam allowance, we are going to use whatever
seam allowance our pattern calls for, mine is 1/2″, so I am sewing at 1/2″ all the way down until I get to the pocket bag and then
where the 1/2″ seam allowance meets on my side seam to the 1/2″ on my pocket bag that is the point that we are going to pivot at it’s
important to get a good clean point right there as that’s going to make your
garment look the best whenever you actually have it on & it’s right side out once you get to the bottom of your
pocket bag you’re going to do the exact same thing you did at the top & you are
going to sew until you get to the point where your seam allowances meet each
other from the side seam and the pocket bag and at that point you’re going to
pivot back to your side seam and then you can just continue sewing down the
rest of what’s left of your side seam if you sewed your pockets correctly then
your pockets will look great on the inside as well as the outside here you
can see what that top stitch looks like once the garment is finished and all
sewn up and obviously you’re going to want to use a matching thread color so
you don’t see it but as you can see here it is keeping my pocket bag from wanting
to fall to the outside of the garment and it’s also helping reduce a lot of
the bulk that happens right there because there are so many layers of
fabric at that point if you guys found this video helpful go ahead and check
