One the wrong side of the garment you will be able to see the basting stitches. (The right side will be covered with the welt/pocket so it's not the best side to sew on). CAREFULLY, ACCURATELY, stitch just inside the basting stitches. Start in the middle of one of the long sides and make the corners very precise. Sew slowly along the short ends and count the stitches so that they can be duplicated on the other end. Pause if necessary to obsessively measure the welt height.
