Cut your pieces out of the regular knit according to the pattern.
Cut a diagonal line from the collar to the bottom of the armhole on the front piece while it is folded in half.
Use that top little piece as your pattern and cut two mirror pieces out of your faux leather making sure to ad about 1/2 inch along the bottom for a seam allowance.
Cut your pocket shape out of the faux leather.
Sew the front bodice pieces back together. With right sides together match up the bottom edge of your faux leather piece with the cut edge of the bodice and sew together. Now you should have a piece that looks like the front bodice piece before you sliced it.
Sew your pocket onto the front. I draped the fabric over me and found a position I liked it to hit and then using packaging tape I taped it to the bodice front. I did this since I didn’t want little holes from using pins.
I stretched and rubbed the edges of my faux leather and decided it wouldn’t be unraveling so I just topstitched around the pockets, easy peasy.
Next just continue putting the shirt together according to your pattern’s directions.
