The Magic of Pockets: Why Your Clothes Don't Have Good Pockets and How to Fix That
Transform your wardrobe with this step-by-step guide to sewing pockets into your favorite clothes. With simple instructions and line drawings, this book teaches six basic pockets, with suggested alterations to customize your wardrobe, while learning the history of what pockets looked like and why they remain a political tool today. All projects are designed for beginner sewists and most can be made by hand, no specialty tools or machine required. For every pair of pants with the pockets sewn shut, for every skirt with nowhere to put your hands, for every jacket missing a place to put your cash, there's one dress with pockets big enough to hold your entire world. But clothes with pockets should not be so rare. With the skills in this book, you can make your old clothes useful again. Everyone deserves pockets!
