Fashion show: Juicy Couture

The name Juicy Couture still makes me squirm, I associated so much with tracksuits, rich footballers and chav's that it really does make me shudder to hear that name. Not that I'm a label snob, I can't afford to be. But the juicy couture brand is just one of those things that get's to me!!

The only other thing, I just wish the Juicy Couture name didn't make me wince!!

Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
