Easy Peasy Rounded Pockets

Sassy Lassie was having problems with the rounded pocket on her Negroni muslin. Here’s an easy way to make the rounded pocket perfect.

Instead of cutting two pocket pieces, cut four.  Place two pieces together, right sides facing, sew side and bottom edges. Trim seam allowances and clip corners.

Turn pocket inside out and press flat.

You can fold the top over once and press to the inside of the pocket or you can fold over twice and top stitch on the outside of the pocket. If you fold it over once, you can use the button to keep the inside fabric in place, you could top stitch at the very top of the pocket. The way I’ve done it is a little more bulky but hey, it’s a muslin.

All you need to do now is top stitch your pocket to your shirt, look at those perfectly round bottom edges!

The top stitching is less than 1/4″ from the edge of the fabric.


Debbie Cook has a great tutorial for rounded pockets which uses interfacing instead of self fabric, why didn’t I think of that?! LINK to Tutorial.
