DIY/ Silk Patterned Pocket

August 13th, 2012

This small silk cut is from my last trip in Berlin and was desperately hanging on my mini inspiration boards as I realized that it would perfectly fit with a small DIY embellishment. I stumbled last week on this post by Alexandra (Lovely Peppa) and fall in love in her tee-shirt with its loose pocket. How effortless & cool is that!

Small details, big effects? -that’s what i wanted to experiment.

There are obviously some pieces that you wear only for casual moments, a weekend at home, and so on.

An example: this fine oversized tee-shirt. This is typically the way I’m used to wear it. Perfect to go to the supermarket on saturday morning.

Vintage leather bag –from here
Sonia Rykiel bag hanger
Giesswein wedges
vintage and hand-made bracelets

The loose pocket, DIY: you need a small quarter of silk and/ or patterned material, scissors and needles. First cut a sample pocket scheme in a tick paper, with the following measurements:

Add one more generous centimeter around the paper sample, cut the material. Hand sew the top of the pocket;

Wear the tee and define the position of the pocket. Pin the material, do an inside hem and sew a perfect quarter (make sure that the upper part length is the same that on the bottom to make a loose movement)

Done!

Now the patterned pocket seems to be a great connection with the military jacket and the tee, that I would have never match that way before. But i don’t like the jeans with this combo.

Better? 

Check!

  1. That turned out so cool. I love the colors of the piece of silk you chose to use for the pocket. I bet you’re going to wear this top a ton. It’s so pretty! Nice job babe! 🙂
