Jean Pool - Back Pockets Part II

Using the suggestions from the 1981 Palmer/Pletsch pattern I went on a hunt for potential back pocket designs. Of course, I did the easiest thing: I googled "back pocket designs". Here's what I came up with as potential designs for the jeans I'm making from M5515. This pattern does not have back pockets so I used the back pocket pattern from the 1981 Palmer/Pletsch pattern.

Potential Designs:

Copied lines to pocket using tracing wheel and paper:

Went over lines with tailor pencil:

Next Sewing the design onto the pockets.

Stay tuned!


  1. That's a great place to put your own designer touch to your jeans. It's fun to play around with pocket designs.

  2. That design would look really great if you put a decorative thread in the bobbin and sewed it right side down! I just saw an article on that technique somewhere.

  3. That is going to be cute! Can't wait to see it.

  4. Ivalyn, Thanks for the suggestion.

  5. It is fun adding a design to the pockets. I'm working on finishing the seam allowances this afternoon. We will see how much I get done.

  6. What a fabulous idea. I need to attempt to make jeans first, but will remember adding a design to the pockets.

  7. I like it! Can't wait to see them completed.

  8. That's really cool that you are making your own design on your pockets. I'm sure it will look great.

    I wanted to welcome you as one of my new followers. I'll try to post something new soon. I just lost my grandmother. The funeral is tomorrow. So I'm in a little bit of a lull. But I'll be getting back into the swing of things again. I hope to post some pretty pictures of her when she was young in a few days.

  9. I am looking forward to see how you are going to finish the pockets. I am going to add making a pair of jeans to my sewing dream list.

  10. Your web site is very good
    I like very well//
    I'll come back
    See you soon..
