Welt-pkt-13_large

(This one is bit hard to explain and my picture is WAY too close up)

The bottom of the welt is stitched to the bottom seam allowance of the opening, directly over (or just next to) the pocket opening seam stitches.

So in the picture, to the left is the fused wrong side of the garment. Under the foot is the bottom seam and seam allowance of the opening. To the right of the foot is the underside of the welt and the bottom half of the pocket.

    I can’t figure out what this step is saying at all. Any help?

      Yeah, I know the picture is WAAAAAAY to close. Look at the picture from step 11 again and see if you can puzzle it out.

      The welt is in once peice, so it also the part of the pocket bag that lies closest to the garment fabric. In order to make the welt stay put, you have to stitch it to something. You are stitching it to the seam allowance of the bottom of the rectangular opening. That is what is going on in this picture.

      “The bottom of the welt is stitched to the bottom seam allowance of the opening, directly over (or just next to) the pocket opening seam stitches.”

      Edit: I have added a video at the end of the tutorial that I hope is helpful to clarify this step.
