well i hope im in the right place. but i need to make pockets on a coat i bought off a cosplay seller online. it is my squall leonhard coat. everything looks just fine but the whole cosplay has absolutly NOpockets on it. i know how to add the ones on the sides of the pants thats easy. and maybe one back pants one but this coat is confusing.. it is also made with lining on the inside. so if i can do it from the outside thatd be great. heres what they look like
this is the pocket
and this is how it looks on the both sides
now the pockets are connected to the coat via the silver buttons on the outside of the pocket but i can easily make a magnet go on the fabric to snap the pocket closed but i was thinking taking the pocket flap off first. cuting, or really, SLICING a hole into the fabric but not cutting the lining inside, and making the pocket go inside and hand sewing the material. then sewing the flap back on by attaching the top back to the coat..if anyone understands what im even saying (which i barely do so good luck lol) please let me know if itll work
heres what im planning (sorry for the bad art here)
taking off that flap as in the pic, cutting where the red line is, the grey is where the inside of the pocket would be and the blue line on the flap is where id sew it back onto the coat.
might this work?
