I want to share my favourite technique for making double welt pockets. It is a combination of several techniques that I have come across in the course of my sewing, as well as of my personal experience. This technique is especially practical in pants or skirts and can be easily modified (the pocketing part) tobe applied in jacket-making, for example.
I have described the technique in two parts in a very picture heavy tutorial on my blog: http://theprincessseam.blogspot.com/
If you happen to view the blog some time after the two tutorials have been posted, just do a search in the blog itself with "double welt pocket."
I hope some will find this technique useful.
