Subject: I can help with the side pockets problem Date: 9/29/10 8:10 PM
On the side pockets, you'll notice each pocket has probably 2 parts - the holder part and the placket. If you look a little closer, you'll see the holder part was sewn to the placket and the then sewn to the piece (front or back).
Then, you can treat the piece as part of the side.
If that doesn't seem to work, then sew the pocket piece to the fabric and use the placket as a seam covering - expect to do a fair amount of handwork at the end.
The only time I've worked with a front pocket with a placket, I ended up sewing on the pocket to the fabric, and then sewing on the placket as a covering piece - it was the only way I could make it work and look correct - lots of hand sewing on it!
