    I just made my first welt pocket with flap EVER following this technique and it turned out beautifully, thank you so much BurdaStyle! xx These instructions are fabulous. I am making the stinchcomb and this tutorial is a million times better than what is in the instructions that are with the jacket pattern.

    I will add though that when you lay the pocket pouch pieces down you should be looking at the wrong sides (this is not mentioned), then when you turn them through the right sides will end up together inside the pocket :)

    Excellent & clear tutorial for welt pockets! Thank you. This was perfect to show my new-to-sewing daughter how a welt pocket is constructed.
