Step 4 Welt Pockets

Construct welt pockets with flaps on fronts: Mark an abutting line for each welt 7 mm (1/4 in) from join­ing lines (= finished width of welt). Hand-baste along these lines to make them visible on right side of fabric. Fold welt strips lengthwise, wrong side ­facing in, and press. Lay doubled strips over pocket markings and pin so that fold edge of each welt meets with abutting line and open edges lie over marked slash line. Stitch welts along joining lines, 7 mm (1/4 in) from fold edges. Slash between lines of ­stitching and clip diagonally toward each last ­stitch, not catching welts. Press welts over pocket openings. Fold small triangles at pocket open­ing ends to inside and stitch to welts, from seam end to seam end. Stitch pocket lining pieces to seam allow­ances of lower welt joining seams and press down. Lay each interfaced flap piece on a flap piece with no interfacing, right sides together. Stitch side and lower edges together, slightly round­ing off bottom corners. Turn right side out. Slip join­ing edge of flaps through pocket openings and stitch to seam allow­ances, close to upper welt joining ­seam. Pin pocket pieces of outer fabric to ­seam allow­ances of flaps. Work from seam ­allowance of upper welt to ­stitch next to seam. Trim pocket ­pieces even and stitch together.
