how to sew a welt pocket with flap: first seams


here is as promised part2 of the tutorial, part1 can still be found here

DSCF5597now I put one strip with the open side right next to the marked line

DSCF5598and the other strip on the other side of the line, also with the open side to the line, so the open edges are facing each other

DSCF5601then I pinned them in place and drew  lines where the pocket ends, I made sure on both ends were equally close to the lines

DSCF5602then I sewed both strips right in the middle of each strip line to line

DSCF5605now I cut in between the strips

DSCF5606but ended about 1cm before the real pocket end

DSCF5607 DSCF5608from that point I cut in triangle to the seam ends

DSCF5609DSCF5610and turned the ends of the strips inside

DSCF5612and ironed all, so it looked all straight.

Tomorrow I will show you the next steps. So stay tuned! If you have any questions about the process so far, please do not hesitate to ask.

keep sewing and smiling
