Making Pockets on Garments & Clothing : How to Stitch Up an Inseam Pocket


I’m Candi Cane Canncel with Expert Village.
In this clip we’re going to be stitching up our inseam pockets. After you’ve stitched
the front to the front and the back to the back you are going to line them up the right
sides together. Then you’re going to go ahead and pin it (pinning) just making sure that
the seam is lined up and that your seam is pressed really flat. Cause what we’re going
to be doing is sewing in one whole motion going all the way around the pocket so just
go ahead and pin all the way around. When you’re finish pinning you’re ready to stitch
(stitching) your going to be starting at the seam line right on the seam. You are going
to start on the seam line and then you’re going to be stitching all way around I’m going
to go with a 3/8 of a seam allowance. Then start stitching all the way around (stitching)
if it’s a little difficult for you to sew a curve you can always make sure that the
needle is in at the curved point and you can lift up your foot and turn it. Then you’re
going to end at the seam line being careful not to actually stitch into the garment and
make sure to back tack. You can take out your pins and when you fold the garment back you
have yourself an inseam pocket.
