Hi everybody,

I’m just getting started with learning how to sew, but I understand the basic construction of a single welt pocket. Now I’ve seen a “flush” single welt pocket on a pair of chinos:

I can’t wrap my head around how this one is done. I would love to use a similar pocket on the chest of a t-shirt, is that in any way possible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It’s just a standard in-seam pocket. There’s no welt on it. It’s just that the opening is horizontal, at the waist rather than in a side seam.

    Thanks ladies, that actually helps a lot. Looks like this obvioulsy won’t work for a chest pocket on a t-shirt though. Unless I add a seam across the chest, which doesn’t sound like the worst idea in my head – will have to see how it looks in reality, haha. Thanks again.
