So sorry for the delay in posting this message, I was away all weekend.
Great job on the pocket welts Andrew! We did an experiment on Thursday and did two different welts on one jacket, this is only a practice one so it was good to see which one he likes best and can execute easily, it was hands down the single welt pocket with a flap that may be hidden if desired. Andrew did it in record time and a really good job too! 😀
Homework is to put together the lining and add inside pockets to lining with a single welt. Baste the jacket together at the side seams and the shoulders remove the twill tape stitching and stitch properly with invisible stitches.
For next class we will be fitting the jacket and creating the sleeves for both lining and fabric so please be sure to bring all the pieces with you.
Have a great week!
Thank you for the pix Andrew, below are the single welt - first attempt by Andrew I might add! The second picture is the double welt which is the standard pocket on jackets. In both cases the flap can be hidden or seen the choice is left up to the wearer. Which one do you prefer?
