Draw your welt pocket size on your garment. In this example, I use 1 inch wide and 5 inches long. Fuse interfacing over your pocket position on the wrong side on the garment. Cut your welt piece (contrasting fabric in my case) to be 3 times the width of the welt pocket size and the length of your welt pocket plus 2 times the seam allowance. My welt piece is 3 inches wide and 6.25 inches long (for a 5/8" seam allowance). You can add interfacing to the welt piece if you'd like it to be stiffer. Fold your welt piece in half (right sides facing), and stitch the edges.
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
