I remembered making a version of these pockets when I was at college studying Theatre Costume Design, I thought they looked great on the dress in the picture....mmmm I am thinking for just a contemporary look to an outfit.
The book below was bought at an antique shop when I was out and about in Shrewsbury last year, it is a historical costume book printed in 1954.
It has detailed pictures of costumes, pockets and gloves from the 18th century.
The V & A Museum have instructions on how to make your own pocket here .
