Crude Welt Pocket Construction Tutorial (Part 2):
1. Sew down excess ‘v’ fabric at ends of welt.
2. Cut out pocket fabric the same width as the welt.
3. Sew down pocket fabric on bottom welt on top of previous stitch line. Make sure right faces are together and with excess fabric facing upward. Sew through the welt only
4. Repeat on top making sure excess pocket fabric is facing down.
5. What stitching should look like on top welt after attaching top fabric.
6. What pocket pieces should look like before stitching together.
7. OPTIONAL. So. Depending on where the welt is, you may or may not want to cut off excess welt fabric. If it’s a back pocket on a pant and you’re going to put in a waist band, you may want to keep the welt. If you’re making a shirt pocket, you may want to remove it. TL;DR - if you’re okay with bulk, keep the welt, if not, cut it.
8. Stitch pretty much everything together through all layers as close to side of welt as possible (on top of excess ‘v’s), thus sealing the pocket. Stitch tall the way around.
9. Back side of pockets after stitching. Trim off excess fabric from pocket as neccesary.
