Puppet Show Shorts Pocket Placement


I heard some good news earlier today. Oliver + S have finally released a digital version of the Puppet Show pattern. So if you missed out on buying the pattern when it was in print, you can now purchase it here.

This news reminded me that I was meaning to show you a little trick to help get the placement of the pockets right on the shorts. This is what I did.


Where the pocket markings are on the pattern, cut out the pocket shape. You can either trace the shape onto the shorts piece with chalk or disappearing ink, or you can overlay the pattern piece and place the pocket that way.


Pin and then stitch it down. There, that was easy!


  1. What a great idea! I will be borrowing that one.

  2. Cool idea thanks for sharing :)

  3. That's a really handy tip! Thanks! I think I'm off to buy that pattern now!

  4. That is such a brilliangt idea. Truly inspired. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest. I love this one and I pinned it. Thanks for sharing!!
