We sewists have many advantages over poor Ready-to-Wear buying ladies, and surely one of the mightiest is: the pocket!
Yep, pockets are scarce in women’s clothes in stores; I do not know why (a handbag industry conspiracy?!). But, you can add them into almost any garment when you sew.
So it was only natural to add one into my fave Turner Dress. Perfect for storing my phone while strolling around LACMA….
I love this geometric windowpane Turner Dress that I made with ponte from Fabric Godmother. It’s gorgeous and thick and cosy, though watch out: it’s also really melty, so you need to use a very cool iron. That may or may not be a melted bit under my right boob…
And now, dear ones, you can have a Turner Dress with pockets too.
