Overview

Deftly designed and expertly constructed pockets are essential for every fine garment sewer's repertoire, and with Kenneth as your guide, you'll master these skills. Start by sharpening your design eye with a strategy for auditioning different types of pockets and choosing the style and size that complements your pattern best. Then, Kenneth will help you integrate your pocket design into the body pattern and draft your pocket pattern pieces. With Kenneth's guidance, go step-by-step through constructing and finishing seven styles of pockets: regular and pleated patch pockets, shaped and rectangular welt pockets, as well as horizontal, vertical and zippered variations on his foolproof double-welt pocket.
