Impressed by drafting and instructions

Recently at a sewing get together one of my friends was wearing trousers made using Vogue 1417. She told me that the instructions for the pocket were great as there was not a single unfinished edge to be seen after contstruction.


I liked the pattern and am currently working on it and my friend was so right. The draft of the pocket and facings and the instructions are wonderful. Haven’t seen this construction before and love it. In a time there’s a lot being said about lacking instructions this is definitely an example of a pattern well drafted and very good instructions. Of course I’m doing a few things my way, using a woven instead of a stretch. But I did not change a thing to the pockets…



  1. Very interesting. I will add this pattern to my wishlist, thanks for pointing this out.

  2. I made these in a crepe. They're gorgeous those pockets!

  3. Though I don't sew pants with side seam pockets, I can appreciate when good instructions produce great results. Indeed, your pockets are quite nice!

  4. Very nice. I love the pocket finish.


It's always nice to have feedback on what I'm posting about. All comments, also positive criticism, are always highly appreciated.
