In this My John Lewis Festival of Sewing session, author and former Great British Sewing Bee contestant Jenniffer Taylor will lead a one hour pocket masterclass.

Jenniffer will demonstrate how to construct a series of different pocket styles, including patch pockets (both curved and square bottomed), in-seam pockets and yoked pockets.

These are all featured in her new book Your Skirt, Your Way - the essential guide to drafting, designing and creating your own unique, made-to-measure skirts.

  • Level: Suitable for all levels - beginner, intermediate and advanced sewists.

You will need:

Preparation before the session:

  • We highly recommend that you pre-cut your fabric into 25cm x 25cm squares, ready for creating the different pockets.
  • Ensure you purchase any relevant products and materials in advance of the session.
  • Ensure you have all your equipment, materials and assets ready to go as there will be no prep time during the session and Jenniffer encourages customers to craft along.

What you’ll learn and make in the session:

  • How to construct a series of different pockets.
  • How to add pockets to your garments and other sewing projects.
  • Handy hints and tips to achieve perfect pockets every time.

Joining a virtual experience: Our Virtual Experiences will take place via Zoom. We’d recommend using a laptop or desktop if possible to make it easier for you to take part. One week before your Virtual Experience, we’ll send you full details on how to join.

  • Please note we may record this session for internal purposes only.
  • Please note terms and conditions apply.
  • You'll need to be a My John Lewis member to book a ticket to this event. If you aren't a member, it's easy to join. Simply click here to get started.
