Yesterday I was sewing Ottobre Pattern #38 Harrison (bermuda shorts or pants) from the 03/2012 issue. Everything was going smoothly until I came to the back slit pocket. I read the directions and acted out the parts three times going "What the heck?" I finally did figure it out, however visual reference would have made the process much easier.
How to sew a Slit Pocket
Back Pants panel with slit pocket completed
4. Pin together catching only pocket pieces in and carefully keeping pleated part the way it is.
6. Flip pants over and topstitch the top part of the panel catching in all layers (on the pic below this is the bottom part as my pants panel is flipped upside down). Now admire the cute Slit pocket!
I hope my steps help someone out!
