A lined pocket flap is less bulky and can be more precisely sewn and pressed than a pocket flap that is self-faced. I'm always interested in increasing the accuracy and precision of my sewing and this is a nice touch that helps me do that.

I have prepared a photo tutorial (accessible at the photo link above) to show how it's done. The tutorial covers accurate stitching, trimming, pressing and topstitching. There are detailed captions under each photo which will give you more information.

Ask questions in the comments section, if you have any.

Your topstitching is excellent. How do you mangage to get so close to the edge without having uneven, crooked stitching?

A great addition to my group of tutorials. Your precision is enviable! Thanks for this informative, time intensive project! Next time you are jacket making, please prepare an in depth tutorial on how to achieve beautiful collar points..mine are still hit or miss! In your spare time, of course!! Thanks again.

Thank you so much for this tutorial. There are several garments (of mine) I can think of that would have looked better sewn if I had looked at this tutorial first.
