Custom pocket

Acolart_8_24_23 AMOnce upon a time I went to a thrift store and bought a fantastic soft gray skirt.  It was the perfect size, super comfy, great length for wearing with leggings and boots AND it was made by J.Jill.   Yes please, I'll take it for $3.

It has a regular spot in my wardrobe rotation, but the pocket space was ridiculous.  Really, Jill?  It might be enough space for chap stick, but you can see only half of my phone can fit.  At work, I need my phone, paper, pen and pager on me at all times.  I often carry a tiny little purse, but pockets are better sometimes.

I looked for a beautiful fabric scrap in my stash and made an extended pocket to fit my cell phone. I can tuck a piece of paper and maybe a pencil in there too, pager can go on my waistband.

I'm pretty delighted with my little hidden pocket. From looking at the skirt, there's no way to tell I've made a change in the skirt (until I pull it inside out to show you, and believe me I'll probably show you if I get a chance!)

Some of the pocket was made on my sewing machine and some of it was hand sewn (don't look too close!) because of the tight space.
And now I'm off to add pockets to all my clothes....  :)

I do this to fix too small pockets on my jeans all the time! I love big pockets and cant get why womans clothing companies insist on making itty bitty pockets (or no pockets) in pants and skirts!
