Box Pleat Patch Pocket with Flap
Pocket components were basted, then slip stitched down to front panel. The pocket flap received an extra step with a false French seam finish to avoid any exposed raw edges under the flap. In addition, each corner of the pocket opening and flap opening received extra slip stitches as back stitching for strength.
- If we hand sew the button holes, the holes may not last long unless stitches are super tightly stitched.
- Fabric is super light weight, so we need to find lightweight buttons.
- If we do not use buttons would snaps look OK?
- Can a machine apply the button holes at this point considering the entire garment is fully hand sewn?
