I prepared a few universal pocket patterns for you. Below you can download patterns for three different in-seam pockets (with slanted, straight, and round opening) and pattern for a patch pocket. This article also contains video tutorials that will quickly teach you to sew pockets efficiently. The patterns below are designed without seam allowances - don't forget to add them before you pick up the scissors.

I show the technique on the dress, but you can also use it when sewing a skirt, pants, or sweatshirt. The dress is sewn according to the pattern for the women's dress JACKELINE with raglan sleeves. My dress has shorter sleeves than the original pattern - I simply shortened the sleeve pieces.
