I put together a little tutorial on making front welt pockets on your pants. I prefer welt pockets, if I'm going to have pockets at all, for several reasons. The main reason is that I like the way they feel better than having to stick my hands in side-seam pockets. Also, there is no bulk added at the side seam using this method. Thirdly, I just like welt pockets! If you click on the icon above, it should take you to a link on Flickr.

Happy sewing!

Very informative. I am sure that when I finally get the nerve up to do a welt pocket I will refer to it. Thanks for taking the time.

Fantastic tip. This is the most flattering pocket type ever, in my opinion. I've not had the courage to try it, but I do now.

Superb tutorial. I used to be a little scared of welts, but the more I sew them, they are becoming much easier.

Annette, this is the best welt pocket tutorial I've ever seen, and I'm not kidding. Thank you for your time and meticulousness. I'm going to try your method of weltography at the next opportunity. --Lily
