I have a coat that originally came with horribly over-sized patch pockets that I’ve finally decided needed to go, but I hate coats that don’t have pockets. So I was going to add in-seam pockets, but the side seams of the coat are a little too far back so it would make using the pockets awkward.
So my question is:
Would I be able to add other “invisible” or slanted welt pockets in the middle of the front panels of the coat?
I do have extra fabric from the removed pockets. I believe this coat is a wool blend felt. My sewing skills are self taught and enough to hem my own jeans, mend holes, sew buttons, but that’s about it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
