Thick-fabric garments and lined garments all have lined patch pockets. A facing section is integrated in opening edge of the pocket on the sewing pattern piece. The lining piece should be cut out without the facing section; to do so, just fold under the paper pattern piece along the line for the facing. Mark the facing line on the pattern piece, as this will be the lining line. Cut off the pattern piece along this line. Cut out the fabric and lining pocket pieces with seam allowances all around. With right sides together, stitch lining pocket piece on facing, leaving a gap in the middle for turning. Press seam allowances into lining section. Turn facing outwards along the fold line. Pin side facing edges onto pocket and continue pinning lining on the pocket. Stitch edges on top of one another. Trim off seam allowances, cutting across the corners and snipping into the curves right up close to the stitching line. Turn pockets, baste edges with the seam close to the edge on the lining side of the pocket. Press. Hand sew up the gap. Then stitch on the pocket as explained under simple pockets.
