Let´s start sewing!
Prepare the paper pattern (shop the pattern here: Sewing pattern – women´s dress Silhouette).
Prepare all pieces from fabric: 1x front on fold, 1x back on fold, 2x sleeve, 2x pocket with opening, 2x full pocket with side piece, 2x side piece, 1x front facing on fold, 1x back facing on fold.
Apply a piece of fusible tape on the garmet as it is shown in picture bellow.
Place the pocket on front pice, right sides together.
Sew along the pocket opening
Clip the seam allowances right on the corner and above the pocket extension.
Prepare the proper full pocket piece.
And place it on the front as shown in picture bellow, right sides together.
Sew both pieces together. Stop in the corner of front.
Turn both pocket pieces into the wrong side. Check if everything in the corner is correct.
If everything seams ok, than neaten the seam allowances.
