next issue of Get Stitched coming soon

With the end of September less than a week away I'm working on pulling together the next issue of the bi-monthly newsletter to publish very soon.

One of the creative ideas I'll be describing is how to add these these lovely puckered texture pockets to a garment. You could add them to a jacket, tunic or a skirt....or perhaps you could suggest something I haven't thought of? 

The pictures below show the pockets as an added feature on my most recently published pdf pattern, the "Hester Skirt".

I also put the pockets on another version of the skirt made in a woven fabric, which was a natural colour seeded broadcloth, and they looked just as great. I placed them a little higher up on the second skirt version. But I like the pockets placed low on this first version shown here because I plan to wear it with a long line tunic and the lower placement allows the pockets to show below the tunic hem, though in practical terms they are below the natural reach of the hand
