Welt Pocket Tutorials

I’m getting there!  With the Craftsy courses I signed up for, I F.I.N.A.L.L.Y. finished attaching the fashion fabric and silk organza for My1Dress.  And that’s without underlining the sleeves (*sigh*).  And while doing some elder sitting last night I finished drafting the pattern pieces for my pants master pattern and cut out most of the pieces.  But, since I like to complicate my sewing projects, I am attempting single welt pockets for the orange cords.  I even got to begin a practice welt pocket with some leftover brown corduroy from a failed project.

I have watched and read many welt pocket tutorials in the past few weeks. And then I promptly lost most of the links.  I’m putting what I liked most here so I can find it easily next time.

Patti Palmer demonstrates a double welt pocket installation at the end of the Sewing with Nancy DVD “Jackets for Real People”. The demo is also on the Nancy’s Notions website/youtube.

This one from youtube is pretty straightforward:

But the best one I’ve encountered, hands down, is Ann Steeves’ (of Gorgeous Fabrics fame) welt pocket instructions published in Threads Magazine. Boy am I glad I bought the Threads archive DVD.  It has come in handy for so many things already.

Ann also has an updated tutorial on her old blog, Gorgeous Things.
