The first step is to take your phone and measure it. You will need to measure the dimensions of the front of the phone, the side of the phone, and the top of the phone. Then draw rectangles according to those dimensions on a piece of cardboard in order to make a box that your phone will fit in. You will also need to measure the camera location and size.

Step 3: Cut Out

Make sure the phone fits, then cut it out. On the face you are using for the screen, leave a little bit of uncut cardboard to ensure that the phone will not fall out of the case. You do not need any cardboard over the top of the phone, because this is how you will insert the phone into the case.

Step 4: Test

If the phone fits, then tape the case together. Make sure you can slide the phone in and out of the case easily and also make sure the camera can "see" out of the hole you have made for it.

Step 5: Measure The Difference

See how the new case fits in your suit pocket. If it goes down so far that the camera cannot "see" out of the pocket, then measure the difference between the height of the case, and the height it needs to be to "see" out of the pocket.
