Video: Manuel’s Piped Pockets

Gary Junken

with Manuel
An Online Extra to Threads #103

Manuel, clothier to the stars, includes piping in almost all his creations. He makes the piping from 1-inch strips of suiting fabric cut on the cross-grain, wrapped and stitched around cotton cord. This video demonstrates the process utilized by seamstress Maria Perez to make piped pockets for the fashions in Manuel’s Nashville, Tennessee, shop.

For a complete profile and step-by-step instructions for making the piped pockets, read “Meet Manuel, King of the Cowboy’s Closet,” in the October/November 2002 issue of Threads (#103).

    This is just the best video I have been able to find thank you. Does maria have her piping foot close to the other piping piece, I have been trying to get my pocket piping to be even but with no success, the width is never the same, any tips please.
