Use a 1cm (!⁄"in) seam allowance throughout unless otherwise stated. You will find the templates needed on the pull-out pattern sheet.
Step one Draw a pocket shape onto the wrong side (WS) of the print fabric. Leaving a 1cm (!⁄"in) seam allowance around the pocket with a 2cm (¾in) seam allowance above the top of the pocket, cut out your pocket shape. Work a machine zigzag stitch around the edge to neaten.
Step two Press the bottom two short edges over to the WS along the marked line and then the two long sides. Fold the pocket top edge over by 1cm (!⁄"in) twice so that the zigzagged edge is encased. Press and then stitch this down 1cm (!⁄"in) from the top pocket edge.
Step three Pin the pocket on your T-shirt then stitch it in place remembering to sew over the top of the pocket sides and into the T-shirt to secure the pocket. We marked a horizontal line as a marker so our pocket remained straight whilst pinning.
ADDING A SLEEVE CUFF
Make cuffs for both sleeves in the same way using the following method. Step one Cut two strips, six triangles wide and 33cm (13in) long. Fold and press the top row of triangles down WS together onto the next row; repeat with the bottom row, but fold this up. Fold your strip in half again and press.
Step two Draw a line on your T-shirt sleeve 5cm (2in) down from the armpit and 14cm (5½in) down from the top seam.
Step three Open out one of the folded strips and fold it in half widthways right sides (RS) together then trim to fit the cut arm edge. Pin the strip RS together where you need to stitch. Step four Take the strip off the T-shirt and pin then stitch along the drawn line. Cut off the excess print fabric and press the seam open. Cut off your sleeve along the line.
Step five Slip the folded edge of the strip into your sleeve so the side seams match. Line up the top row of triangles with the T-shirt edge. Step six Fold the top edge of the strip WS together again so that the T-shirt edge is encased and pin in place.
Step seven Sew the strip in place 2mm (%⁄&'in) in from the pinned edge so that you stitch through all layers of folded fabric and T-shirt to encase the sleeve edge.
Step eight Fold the strip back so that it’s doubled. Press and then add a few stitches at the top and bottom to hold.
