Publisher Comments:

Good design is in the details. Pockets on a garment can be as flattering as they are functional. Whether you are sewing tailored trousers or a casual jacket, choosing the right pocket can make a difference in the overall look of the piece. But, with so many pocket styles to choose from, how do you know which one will serve its purpose while looking fashionable at the same time? Select-n-Stitch Fashion Elements: Pockets will help you decide. Whether you select smooth and inconspicuous welt and side pockets for a finely tailored item or fun and functional patch pockets for easy accessibility and fashion flair, you'll learn the best methods and techniques to ensure your pockets are properly positioned, flat, and neatly sewn. The detailed instructions inside this handy guide also show how to choose, place, size, and sew buttons and buttholes, and how to sew the key stitches, such as the overcast and slip stitch. By selection the pocket of your choice, you'll add the perfect functional detail to your own designs- and define your style.
