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.

Mary, that is a really nifty pocket. Great idea. Thanks for posting that.

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
