Need extra help with the pockets on the Vivian apron?

They aren’t hard, just a bit different. Most apron have patch pockets—the pocket fabric is sewn to the front of the apron. Vivian’s pockets are the opposite—a hole is cut through the apron and the pocket is sewn on the back side. The contrast trim is a decorative way of nishing the raw edge of the hole cut in the apron.

To make the pocket, begin with the trim piece. Finish the raw edge with rick rack — an easy and decorative way to nish a raw edge. Then pin the trim piece to the back side of the apron, matching the cut edges. A helpful way to think of this is that you want to look at the wrong sides of both fabrics at this point, because after sewing around the opening, clipping the curves, and turning the trim to the right side, you want to see the right sides of both fabrics. Then press and topstitch the trim in place.

Now your apron has two beautifully trimmed holes in for pockets. The last step is to sew the pockets behind the openings. Finish the pocket edges by serging them or pressing a 1⁄4" seam allowance to the right side. Po- sition the pocket shape so that when you sew around it, it won’t sew over the pocket trim.
