I just setup a new sew forum. Please take a minute to join the discussion.
Winter is here and snow is on the ground. This means lounging around in a comfortable pair of flannel pants.
I don’t know about you, but I carry my cell phone around with me everywhere I go. This means I need pockets. This was the inspiration for this sew along as I recently upgraded my cell phone and it is much larger than my previous one. This resulted in my cell phone falling out of my pocket when I sat down. Therefore, I had to increase the pocket size in this version of my flannel pants.
If you have a pattern that doesn’t include a cell phone pocket then don’t worry they are easy to add.

Then simply draw your pocket out using the technique in the diagram below. Then follow along with me in the video as I show you every step on how to sew them onto your pants.
Use the Bottom Line Marker to increase or decrease your pocket size based on your phone size.
Here I demonstrate how I achieve perfectly aligned crossing seams every time.
Follow along with me as I sew pair of muslin fitting pants for a client. These pants include front slant pockets. In order to allow for maximum comfort and fitting flexibility we will include elastic on the back half of the waistband. This allows for a clean finish on the front side of the waistband.
I also explain how to add slant pockets to an existing pattern. I hope this beneficial to those of you who have any questions regarding the construction process. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Watch as I do a Levi’s 550 Jeans Hem test using the Brother PC420 right out of the box.
