Adding Pockets to the Easy fits!

I don't know about your menfolk, but my husband was very insistent his Easy Fits HAD to have pockets for his phone when I made them.... and I think the next pair I make myself will get pockets as well ... I mean why not right.... I have a phone too .... 

To start with grab a piece of paper (A4/ 8.5x11)  and draw yourself a square with the measures in the corner and cut that out. These measures sare for the ADULT easy fits pattern. You can of course adjust and scale as needed or seen fit :)

Now use the large piece as your pocket pattern and cut 4 pieces, 2 mirror image pairs. 

Pin them right sides together and you will sew along the bend sides as shown below

Snip those corners and then turn and press.

Fold the short end edge over

The top of the pocket I serged and the short end is folded in from the previous step. Now pin and top stitch the inside bend edge and down the side.

Now you will just sew the fronts together or fold your piece in half like you cut and pin the pockets on the halfway line along the straight edge of your cut out. I did an inch from the top for more hand room and right along the edge you sew along all 3 edges. the top, down the long bend and up the side.

and now sew the pants together as per the pattern, and there you have it, pockets on your easy fits!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays folks!
