Hello RCF friends! I’m Jessica(aka Genwin Design Co.) and I’m back again and excited to talk to you about pockets!
Summer is almost officially here and I always find myself wanting to leave my purse at home so that I have one less thing to carry and keep track of. Wearing garments with plenty of pockets is my solution every summer! If a pattern doesn’t already include pockets, I will find a way to incorporate them because I find them so helpful. Not only do I love pockets, but I like them to be decent sized so that they are actually useful.
Today, I’m sharing two patterns that both have pockets included! Let’s start with the shorts. I used the amazing Light Grey and White Leopard Ponte De Roma for some nice, stable shorts. I have really been drawn to animal prints lately and I love how subtle this leopard print is! From a distance, they look like some grey shorts, but once you get up close, you can see the awesome leopard print!
I made the Sonia Estep Designs Iris Shorts because the fit is just perfect every time! I added both front and back pockets so that I have plenty of options for carrying things with me! I’ll usually throw my phone in my back pocket and any cards or cash in a front pocket so that I’m not hauling around a purse or bag!
Now we can talk about this bright, but simple top! I used the Solid Red 4-Way Stretch French Terry to make the Sonia Estep Designs Olivia dolman style top and I chose this pattern because it has a nice, big kangaroo pocket! Perfect for snacks for my kids!! Did I mention how much I love pockets? 😉 RCF’s french terry is always a go-to for me because it is so soft, vibrant, and has a great stretch! I really loved how the red looked with the subtle leopard print for a nice summer outfit!
Thanks for dropping by and reading today! I would love if you followed me on Instagram and followed along in my sewing journey!
