Camí Sew-Along: Option – Adding a Breast Pocket

by Pauline Alice
I love pockets for their practicality and the detail they add to any simple design. I thought it would be nice to add an optional pocket template for the Camí dress to give it a more casual look.
Find the link to download the pocket pattern template below. Print it with NO scaling like the pattern, the seam allowances are also included in the pattern (1,5 cm or 5/8″).

Fold twice the top of the pocket following the folding lines and stitch close to the fold line.

When you are happy with the place, stitch around the pocket, leaving the pocket top open.
Are you going to add the pocket? If you have missed a step, here is the schedule.

The pocket is such a cute idea. Sadly I'm not going to add the pocket this time, but maybe next time 🙂

Thanks Kirsty! You could always add it to any other dress or blouse pattern for a cute detail! I'm glad you didn't gave up on the dress 😉
