My second pocket is now officially done!! *throws confetti*
See I have pics to prove it, including close ups of the infamous piecing. *da dum* I used a flat felled seam for that, mostly for strength. Actually my first ever flat felled seam - I'm usually a French seam girl. I did the initial seaming on the machine but did the rest by hand. I figured it won't be as glaring that way and also the rest of the pocket was done by hand so it matches. :>
For my first pocket I sewed the linen tape waist band directly to the pocket but for this one I sewed a little channel so the waistband could be threaded through. This way the pockets are adjustable, as not all my pockets slits are in precisely the same place.
My stays are all boned now as well, except for the side seams which I have to sew first. I also did a quilt signature - and all with a day long headache, go me!
