A flapped patch pocket is worked like a normal patch pocket, with or without lining. The flap can be lined with self-fabric or lining. Stitch the flap sections together with right sides together. So that the flap will later conceal the attachment seam, stitch inwards on the slant from the marked attachment line onwards. Secure seam ends, leaving the attachment edge open. Trim back the seam allowances, cut across the corners and snip into the curves. Turn the flaps, baste edges, press and topstitch if desired. Neaten/finish attachment edge allowances together. With the right side underneath, pin flap over the pocket, stitch in place and secure seam ends. Press flap downwards. If necessary, slip-stitch side flap edges about 1 cm from attachment line.
