Popped Pocket Pattern

As promised, here is the instructions (and pattern pieces) for making the popped pockets on my 1940's wrap dress.
These would be really easy to add to any existing pattern you had, and are a nice 1940's touch (especially with the ric-rac).

The pockets themselves are very to make:
1. Cut pieces out.
2. Transfer guide dots to the skirt.
3. Attach facing to pocket piece (clip curve) - seam allowance of 1/2 inch.
4. Turn facing to inside, hand stitch in place (make sure top of facing lines up with top of pocket).
5. Attach pocket to skirt, following guide dots.

To print, right click on the images and open in a new tab.
Save the images, and print portrait at 100% (i.e. actual size). The pieces should fit A4 and US 8.5" x 11'.

Good luck and enjoy!

Oh Bex this is awesome! I love pockets but aside from side seam pockets I have a heck of a time getting them to look pretty.

Thank you! :-)
I have some summer fabric in my stash that I have in mind for some of these fab pockets. You're a diamond for giving us the pattern pieces too x
