Pocket closeup-no flap

Pocket closeup-no flap

I really like this pocket. The pattern called for a flap with a button. I just thought it would be too much for that area on my body. I saw a jacket from Spiegel that had a similar pocket style.

The sleeves had turned up cuffs but I just could not get them to look right. Part of the problem was that I could not get smaller buttons for the cuffs and the size I used for the front just pulled the cuffs down.

The sleeves had not been pressed with I took this photo. I am thinking I may topstitch at the edge to match up with the topstitching at the hemline and center back and center fronts.


  1. I really like that style pocket! It looks great on that jacket. It is a much more interesting detail than one with a flap!

  2. You did a great job on this jacket. I"m sure you'll enjoy wearing it.
