Pockets on dresses, coats, skirts and trousers are wonderful, but how do you even sew in the hidden pockets?!

We took the pattern from the Mubera jacket to explain it to you. So let's go.

For the seam pockets you need:

  • 4x pocket pouches
  • 4x tops

As the name suggests, the seam pockets are integrated into a seam. The special thing about the Mubera pattern is that the pocket opening is on the front sections. For the first step, neaten the seam allowances on the tops and the straight edges on the pocket bags. Then you sew one of the pocket bags, right sides together, onto the matching front piece.

The natural allowance is ironed out. Now you sew the seam allowance on both sides of the seam, close to the edge (info: blue line = seam; yellow line = quilting).

Do this with both sides and place both parts on top of each other, right sides together.

Now you connect the front parts with two seams. Once from the hem to the snap, on the pocket bag (marked with a pin) and once from the sleeve to the snap.

After that, all you have to do is sew the pocket bags together and overcast the seam allowance.

This is how the finished bag looks from the inside.

Have lots of fun with it
