I found this skirt today when i was out, and i love that it has pockets, But i have nooo idea how to add ones that arent attached on the outside. Does anyone know how to make a skirt with pockets like this or of any instructions for pockets that may help me? Thankyou for any help!!

I am working on some dungarees that use this type of pocket, before that I didn't know how to do them either.

The skirt shape is actually cut with the part your hand goes into already cut out, so your skirt front isn't a regular rectangle or semi-circle (or whatever), but looks like someone has taken a bite out of the corner. (lower left hand corner)

Then, you need a square that will make up the back of the pocket. This will need to fit in with the side seam, so you can't have something curvey like a circle and then try and attatch it to a straight seam. It needs to be the same fabric as the rest of the skirt, because it will be visible in that bite part of the skirt front. (Dashed line)

Last piece is the bit that fills the gap between the square pocket back, and the skirt front. It needs to have the same shape as the bite, and also the same shape as the pocket back. (top right)

Then, sew the last bit on to the skirt front, right sides together. remember to clip the curves. Then, the last bit on to the pocket back. In order to keep them all together, baste along the top though all three layers, and along the side though all three layers. (top left hand corner)

That pocket piece is often one piece, eliminating the extra seam toward the center front.  This is rather nice because it also eliminates bulk and makes the pocket stronger.
