It’s a very good idea and perfect for Donors Choose. I’m a big supporter between my dd and my nephew’s SO.

Add Pockets to Any Skirt or Dress Without Ruining the Look

It’s criminal that so many women’s clothes don’t come with pockets, even in skirts or dresses where they’d be easy to hide. Take matters into your own hands: This video shows you how to add pockets to a skirt or dress you already own.


First, your skirt or dress must have a side seam that the pockets can be sewn into, so if yours has smooth sides, it won’t work for this project. You’ll also need a sewing machine, paper (for the pattern), chalk, a seam ripper, and extra fabric for the pockets. You can reuse scrap fabric, like an old shirt or pillowcase.

The video above walks you through the whole process, but if you can’t watch,

The Colette Patterns Pants Fitting Cheatsheet  |  Colette Blog

This is fantastic, Sarai! Thanks for putting it together for us all.

I have a question, though, that I think isn’t addressed in your cheat sheet. I’ll give you a little background first, in case it helps:

RTW pants almost never fit me unless I really get lucky with the “curvy” fit, because I have a bit of a swayback and my hips (40?) are a bigger standard size than my waist (28?). The back waist nearly always gaps, and sometimes the sideseams aren’t straight. These things I can fix when I’m sewing my own pants, and sometimes correct in RTW pants.

But, the fit issue that just kills me and that I’ve never been able to reliably fix with pants I’ve made for myself is that the hem of

Langanvetäjän liuku / UUDET VARAOSAT

Haluamme olla Suomen paras ompelemiseen keskittynyt verkkokauppa.


Oletpa sitten noviisi tai neulomisen ammattilainen, löydät meiltä mielenkiintoisia ja hyviä tarjouksia ompelukoneista ja saumureista. Haluamme tarjota sinulle markkinoiden parhaat ompelukoneet ja saumurit. Kauttamme saa tällä hetkellä Bernina, Brother, Eva, Pfaff, Husqvarna Viking ja Singer merkit. Ammattikäyttöön tarkoitetuista koneista aina helppokäyttöisiin vasta-alkajien koneisiin.

Ompelukoneet voidaan jakaa kahteen kategoriaan; mekaanisiin ja elektronisiin koneisiin. Suurin ero näiden kahden välillä on ommelvalinnan säätömekanismi. Mekaanissa ompelukoneissa ommelvalinta tehdään mekaanisesta, kun taas elektronisissa valinta on sähköinen.


Mistä aloittaa – apua ompelukoneen valintaan


Jos ompelet vain satunnaisesti, esimerkiksi lyhennät tai paikkaat housuja, tai ompelet verhoja, sopii sinulle parhaiten laadukas perusompelukone. Se on turvallinen tapa tutustua ompelemisen maailmaan. Alla kaksi hyvää vaihtoehtoa tähän tarkoitukseen.

Elektroninen kone (klikkaa linkkiä)


Jos harrastat ompelemista aktiivisesti, teet esimerkiksi kaikennäköisiä ja kokoisia tilkkutöitä, ompelet myös jonkin verran vaatteita, niin sinulle
