I am making a dress and attempted (3-4 times) to make side seam pockets with a French seam. I watched the Moxie tutorial, but when it came to the part at the notched corner, the video speeded up and I couldn't catch it. Anyway, after 4 attempts, in order to save the dress, I just cut off the pockets.....and I love pockets! I googled sites and, for some reason, followed them and kept failing. Feeling really down about this. Does anyone know of a good tutorial or video? I am definitely doing something wrong. I tried notching the pocket....and when it came to the part to enclose the extension of the notch, it became bulky and terrible! Can anyone direct me????
Thank u.....

I just saw this tutorial while browsing through sewing blogs yesterday. Hopefully it'll clear things up for you:
