Sewing in a trouser zipper is not hard, and you have done it before. You probably have a favourite way to go about it.
Here is my preferred method.

Earthy tones and cosy fabrics from Clocci and Cori Autumn/Winter 2012 collections.
These are my favourite garments. I love the diagonal panels and combination of classic leather and short gloves. Leather shoulder patches add structure
Clocci’s colour and texture play is great and I love those red pumps!
And this ensemble can be worn as is, straight off the runway
What are your favourite Autumn/Winter trends so far?

I have not posted any sewing tutorials so far and I’d like to rectify this. You might find them interesting, I know I always look through tutorials on your sewing blogs and sometimes I find very interesting and original variations of the same old techniques.
Today’s tutorial is about sewing a front trouser pocket. Click the pictures for a better look.
I begin with laying the facings on top of the trouser pocket. The pocket is cut as a single piece to avoid unnecessary seams. I try to reduce bulk whenever possible.

I have noticed this trend is becoming more and more popular – it has popped up on a few blogs already, some people are giving them a go and I must say it doesn’t loo too bad!
What do you think, will you give a detachable collar trend a go? Will it work with your wardrobe?
