Less bulky pockets

Here’s a photo of a skirt that I’m working on now. I did an on-seam pocket, but to reduce bulk, I cut the pocket in one with the pattern piece. This tends to result in a less efficient cutting layout, so you need a little extra fabric to try it. It’s a good idea to sew some twill tape just inside the foldline so the pocket keeps its shape. I used a fusible twill tape, but stitched it just inside the fold line anyway because I don’t trust fusibles to stay put. Click on the photo to see a larger one.
