4. Cut out the pockets. From each sleeve piece, cut out one 6 1⁄2-inch by 6-inch rectangle on the bias.
5. Fold the pocket edges. Turn down the top edge of each pocket 1 inch, and press. Turn under the sides and bottom edge of the pocket 1⁄2 inch, and press.
6. Sew the pockets in place. Pin the pockets on the vest front, making sure that the edges of the pockets are aligned with the plaid on the vest. Sew 1⁄4 inch from the edges along the sides and bottom of each pocket.
