Pocket Skirt

Posted on May 14, 2014 at 10:45 PM



I've had this idea for awhile to make some skirts with interesting pockets. Last weekend, I was in the mood to sew and had a remnant of fabric that could make a fast summer skirt. I was using a fav pattern, so I wanted to change things up a bit.


I own a pair of jeans that have the style of pockets that I wanted. I put tissue paper over the pocket and traced it. I added seam allowances and cut the new pattern out. Then, I put the pocket pattern over the skirt pattern and traced the shape of the side seam.



I used white top stitching to get a summer look.


The pocket pattern was made, the skirt cut out, and most of the sewing done on Friday evening. After lunch on Saturday the seams were finished and the hem sewed. I wore the skirt Saturday afternoon.


I thought about adding the belt loops from the jeans too, but I was wanting a fast project and decided to keep it simple.

I love this skirt it is so cute. It is true just changing the pockets can really change it up.

I will have to find another "new" pocket for next time.
