I had no idea where to put this...

I'm making a vest and I want to put a pocket in the lining. Because really, everything needs a pocket of some kind.

A patch pocket is out, I'm not sure I want to put a welt pocket in lining material although that kind of seems like my best bet.

Anyone have any better ideas? I guess there's always the option of a pocket on the outside of the vest, but I'm not sure about that either.

This is a vest from the same pattern...

You could try a hidden lining pocket ala Kenneth King.

I've made these in two jackets and they work out great.

I've put welt pockets in lining...not as bad as you might think, especially if you interface everything.

I like that Kenneth King hidden pocket. I've done the same, but in a coat that had a high waist seam.

I would totally make that pocket if there was a seam to put it in. But this vest is fully lined with no facing.

However, I bought that book (Yay for Kindle!) and thanks to my familiarity with botching up lining, I bought about 3 yards more than I really needed so I guess it's time to welt away!

(This is why MY vest is lined in cotton, but this one I'm making is a gift for my mom.)

Thank you very much!

On the other hand I could do matching horizontal seams in the lining and they'd just look like a design feature. Hmmm.

This is a fantastic tutorial for putting in a double welt pocket. Don't think I'll be doing that much steam ironing on my lining fabric though! But it almost makes me want to put a pocket on the outside. http://youtu.be/6MOuOLkLqQM
