Channeling the 60s: A Kiri Dress Pattern Hack for a Retro A-Line Touch

How to draft pockets:

The size and location of the pockets is up to you! Here's how I made mine:

1 – Cut out two 6″ x 8.5″ rectangles.

2 – Fold the sides and bottom under ½”, and press.

3 – Fold and press the top edge ¼”, then repeat with a 1″ fold. Sew in place.

4 – Decide on the location of the pockets, pin them to the dress and topstitch the sides and bottom.

5 – Cut out 4 rectangles measuring 6.5″ x 3.5″. Place right sides together and sew with a ½” seam allowance, leaving enough room to turn it right side out. Cut the SA, trim the corners and turn right side out. Iron, then topstitch both sides and the bottom.

6 – Pin your pocket flaps to the dress, right sides together, unstitched edge facing up. Topstitch the top edge of the dress.

6 – Cut two 5″ x 5.25″ squares. Repeat steps 2 to 4.

How to sew the dress:

1 – Sew the front and back facings together along the shoulders, right sides together. Press the seams open.

2 – Finish the bottom edge. Set aside for now.

3 – Sew the front and back dress pieces together at shoulder level, right sides together. Press the seams open.

4 – Pin the facing to the dress, right sides together. Sew along the neck. Unfold the facing and iron the seam allowance towards the facing. Understitch the facing and press it against the inside of the dress.

5 – Open the dress at the side seams and lay it flat, as in the photo below.
