front hip pockets
today we're talking about a type of pockets very common in adult clothing: the front hip pocket. the name says it all, these are flat pockets on the front of a garment.
here they are in the baby pants i made miss neela:
and the hippie baby pants I made mr. thatcher.
these always look tricky, but if you have a well drafted pattern with good instructions they are a snap. i've found that edge stitching the pocket facing is really essential.
personally i like to an accent fabric on the facing and use a contrasting thread. like i did below for the sunday brunch skirts.
speaking if that fabric and skirts, I've made front hip pockets for myself more than once via the everyday skirt.
