Fold the welts lengthwise, right side facing in. Stitch narrow edges together. Turn welts right side out. Stitch the welts right sides together with fronts, along marked joining line, with welts pointing down. Lay the pocket pieces of outer fabric on the fronts, opposite welts, and stitch in place, 1.5 cm (5/8 in) from welt joining seams. These seams should be approx. 5 mm (3/16 in) shorter than the welt joining seams at each end. Slash between lines of stitching and clip diagonally to each last stitch. Do not cut the pocket pieces. Pull the pocket pieces to the inside. Press welts over pocket openings. Stitch the pocket lining pieces to seam allowances of welt joining seams, on inside. Fold the small triangles at pocket opening ends to the inside and stitch to pocket pieces. Trim pocket pieces even and stitch together. Sew narrow edges of welts in place by hand.
