Tutorial: How to add a pocket to the Callens Leggings

The adult version of the Callens legging is finally here. Just like the kids version this pdf pattern has a side stripe option. And because the adult sizes are wider, so is the stripe. This calls for a pocket hack doesn’t it? We think it does and so did some of our testers. Therefore we asked them to create a tutorial for you and Marije Oudejans was the first to respond. She took pictures of the steps for you. All you need is some extra fabric and your phone or whatever you’d like to store in the pockets.

Ready? Here we go.

The above pictures are in the correct order. Though if you are less experienced you might miss the steps in between. Between the second and third picture, sew the pocket to the stripe. There are two ways to do this. The first way is to place the pocket wrong side to the stripe like explained in this tutorial. The second way is to fold the bottom of the pocket inwards and sew the pocket bottom directly to the stripe as shown in the fourth picture.

After sewing the pockets to the stripes, you can follow the pattern directions for sewing the stripe option. And voila, you have your perfect exercise leggings with pockets. This tutorial works for the legging option with the stripe and the flared option with the stripe.
