A single welt pocket is similar to the bound pocket (as described in nikishells howto), but only has a single "flap". It's a great way to add a contrasting fabric to your garment, or you can use matching fabric.

I already had my camera out while making my Sidonie skirt. So I figured I'd add a how to on single welt pockets, and save anyone who's interested the headache of tracking down instructions online! I highly recommend that you make a couple of test pockets before you cut into your garment.

    One of the must-have features on a pair of jeans is the welt pocket. It not only brings beauty to the jeans but also make it more useful. You can stuff in your favorite things inside the welt pocket very easily. Port Window Frame
