Close up of the front:
I do not plan to wear a shirt tucked in with these and the rest is satisfactory, so I'm OK with that. Being the opposite of Type A really helps in sewing....
I enjoy topstitching quite a bit. It makes it all look put together. My sewing machine kept spitting out my needle when I tried to do the narrow row of zigzag on the pockets. I eventually had to give up on that after doing the best I could.
I chose to have the front of my pocket lining facing me so I can see the fun burst of color. Nobody looks inside my pockets!
I highly recommend this pattern if you are a first-timer. Go for it! You won't be disappointed!
