Adding inset pocket to a circle skirt

How do you put a pocket in a circle skirt?
Cut open the two sides of your skirt to make two halves, then place your pocket right sides together, about 3u2032u2032 (for adults, 2u2032u2032 for kids) from the top, and sew that pocket on right sides together. Do the same for both pieces, and you’ll have four pocket pieces to sew on.
