Hi there,

Thread's magazine has put together a lot of resources for ideas on how to make a blouse more interesting - from colors, adding unique cuffs, mixing up fabric patterns, etc - so its inspired me. Does anyone out there know of some interesting ideas you can do for peacoat/jacket pockets? A design element to make my solid color jacket have a little more personality!

Thank you!
Liz

Threads magazine website has a number of articles on pockets. Also there are books written by Claire Schaffer.

sewmamasew blog has some ideas.

This Threads video has some really good ideas that are simple.

Well, there are a number of choices depending on what you want the final to look like. It's relatively easy to add a flap, which can be piped or shaped to look cool. If there's no flap, you can do contrast welts, or a decoratively shaped or piped stand up welt.

You can always convert your pocket to a patch with either an inverted box pleat in the center or knife pleats on the edges.

With a flap.

Go on the Saks and Neiman's websites and take a look at all their jackets. You're sure to find at least one pocket idea you'll love.

I went thru all my old Burda magazines...When I found a pocket idea that I liked I traced that pocket pattern and copied the directions on how to make it. I put them in a ziploc bag, then add it to my "jacket pocket" box. Whenever I make a jacket, I look thru my pocket patterns and usually use one of them.

I recently found this pocket while researching design Lili Ann. It reminds me of a tulip and I think it is gorgeous.

Beautiful pocket solosmocker.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Enjoying all the great ideas. I'm also intrigued with creative garment closures.

Butterick 5697 has a shawl collar that extends into and becomes the pocket fronts. Not extremely thrilling, but a nice and different approach for a practical pocket that is nicely placed to actually keep your hands warm. Vintage??? B5697

I checked, it's OOP. I'll have to start dating my patterns. When I checked this pattern number, 4 different patterns popped up. It is simple enough to copy though. I think I have seen the same concept on a princess cut dress or jumper, with the center princess section extending out at the lower sides to form pocket fronts.

I have no idea what Apple thought I was saying so be a Peach and credit anything bizarre to auto correct.

Just Pockets by Patricia Moyes is a great resource. It looks like it's out of print, but is available used - or maybe your library has a copy.

Suo ergo maledicto

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. - Steve Jobs
