1. Take the dress front pattern piece and draw the outline for a pocket. My pocket is cut at about 1/3 the half waist measurement, the pocket lining cutting line is at about the next 1/3rd. The side mark is at about the hip. My line is at just sharper than a 45° angle, as I think a steeper line is more flattering across the hips. Don’t forget seam allowances.
3. Cut the skirt with the hip corner cut out.
4. Lay pocket facing, right sides together, on skirt and stitch along new diagonal line.
