    @kikicat
    That sounds wonderful... By any chance are you not from Singapore??
    I've heard of fabric glue, but not liquid stitch, didn't see it at Plaza Sing Spotlight as well...
    I'm trying to cater to the local community here.
    I think we mostly rely on safety pins for wardrobe malfunctions.

    YES! we totally should have pockets...
    My god... I KEEP forgetting to add pockets to my costume designs... T.T
    I just never learn... I get so darned excited to finish a costume, that I rush headlong into it.

    you just reminded me to... rmb to add pockets to my Fuwa Sho...
    T.T now I just need to fig out where...
    Will be restarting on it soon... after my exams finish...

    ... ... you have no idea how many times my family ask me to keep the unfinished piece...
    I leave it out so I can work on it... but... haven't touched it in 4 months... (since sch started...) ><"

    LOL! I NEED to learn how to put Hidden Side Pockets and Slit Pocket as I only know how to do Patch Pockets as seen in all my Harry Potter School Robes.
    But whenever I do my own costume, I keep rushing it so the best I can do is depend on my Pants for pockets (IF I'm wearing a Robe but when in Dress....pouch lor!)

    for side pockets...
    what I would do (I have done this before, for my grandmother... but she made me take it out because the pants were snugly fit and the pocket kept gaping open... because... she's not thin)

    is to cut the cloth into a rectangular piece, fold over, sew the bottom of the piece, starting perpendicular from the fold, but curving as it goes towards the opposite raw edge.
    then sew a straight line perpendicular from the fold on the top.
    then sew about 2-3 inches up from the bottom on the side with the raw edge, or until the hole left is not too large or too small for the pocket hole.
    Invert the piece and press flat.

    then cut the threads at the side seam of the dress/pants where you want the pocket to be,
    fit the right side of the dress/pants and the right side of the pocket (the side without any visible seams) together and sew together.

    I hope i described it alright?

    I'm in the US, so my available products will be much different I'm sure. Any quick-drying fabric glue is good.

    Patch pockets are pretty easy like Tesun said. You can make them inside the outfit if you want and even put a snap at the top for more security if you need to carry your keys or money.

    T.T
    ok... I didn't go to any formal sewing classes... so i may have gotten the terminology wrong...
    but ... isn't patch pockets like... breast pockets on a shirt?? visible de??
    I have NEVER made a patch pocket before... though... I suppose it MIGHT be not too difficult to do??

    I was kinda talking about the pockets at the sides of trackpants, dresses or skirts.
    at least how I would make pockets at that area.

    Ya, Patch Pocket are like that, the kind usually found on Shirt or Apron and the easiest type of pocket to do.

    Hi Haldir ! I sent you a PM, was wondering if you received it ?
    "I look forward to your next performance."

    Because everybody needs a little encouragement.

    2-3 days before the event I always make a list of what stuff I should bring in case I forget something and check it again before I leave :3
