Be Active Shorts Pocket Tutorial

Be Active Shorts Pocket Tutorial

Hi everybody! It’s Heather Fletcher from @Fletchersewing. I’m going to show you how easy it is to add inseam pockets to the Be Active shorts pattern. 

First, find a pocket pattern piece that you like. I’m using this one from the women’s Zip It Hoodie pattern. Make sure that the wearer’s hand will fit into the pocket nicely. If you don’t have a pocket pattern piece, you can draft your own by drawing around the wearer’s hand and leaving a little bit of room and a flat edge to attach the pocket to the side of the shorts. Don’t forget to add 1/4” seam allowance if you are making your own.
