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.
