The trousers that I am making for my sewing class (Burda trousers #105 11/2011), require a welt pocket. I have never done this before, but that is one of the reasons I chose this pattern. The instructions in Burda took a bit of working out and this was my first practice following the instructions:
I googled welt pocket tutorials and found this (it is quite long):
In the end I didn't use the tutorial, I followed my sewing intructor's advice. There is a lot of information out there, much of it conflicting or different enough to cause confusion!
So, here is the evolution of my pocket:
The fabric was quite tricky to work with as it is quite thick and almost spongy, but I think it turned out ok!
The next challenge is the invisible zippers. There are three, one at each ankle and one at the waist. I had to order an invisible zipper foot for my machine, which I rather hoped would come with instructions! Unfortunatley not, so I may be trying Youtube again...
