Prior to pressing them down - you have to fidget with the edges to make sure they don't show. I was hoping for a fidget-free solution, which this is not. Worth a try though - I'm more pleased with these pockets than I was with either of the first two shirts I made.
And after stitching it on the shirt. I added some decorative stitching too - I wasn't totally pleased with the margins around the pockets. You'll see that tomorrow (hopefully).
As an aside, this is why we do a sample stitch before committing. I wanted to check stitch length, but doing the "drape a length of thread over the fabric" testing - the darker looked really great and the lighter was sooo bright and annoying. Stitch test showed that the darker was going to be too dark. These are the little things that make a difference.....
And here's a sneak peek... I put this decorative stitching around the pocket, and have put it around the sleeve bands too. (You want continuity in your decoration or it looks homemade rather than handmade).
