Step 4 Construct welt pockets on fronts (Outside of Jacket)

Mark abutting lines for welts on right side of fabric with basting thread, 1 cm (3/8 in) from welt joining lines (fin-ished width of welts). Fold welt strips lengthwise with right side out and press. Lay doubled welt strips on fronts and pin so that fold edges of welts meet abutting lines and open edges touch. Stitch each welt along joining lines, 1 cm (3/8 in) from fold edge. Slash between lines of stitching and clip diagonally toward each last stitch but do not cut welts. Lay welts into pocket openings and press. Fold small triangles at -pocket opening ends to inside and stitch to welts, across base of each triangle. Top-stitch welts along joining seams at a large zigzag setting, using contrasting sew-ing thread. Stitch pocket pieces to -allowances of welt joining seams. Trim pocket pieces even and stitch together.
