I have had this picture up on my board for abut a year or more. I love the pocket and I am not sure how to make this. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have Sew Any Pocket and nothing seemed appropriate, except maybe magic window, facing it with organza. But, this is not my preferred method of making welt pockets.pocket
I am not sure that the pocket is clear. The ends are pointed instead of square.

That look reminds me of the PR class on zippered welt pockets.
The welts actually come to a point instead of being square, hmm, I dont' think I have seen that before, you have given me something to contemplate.
I supose that just angling the stitching towards the point at the end would be too simple, that would complicate things when you turn it to the correct side.

Do you have Kenneth King's book on Designer details? Or decorative details?...what was the name of that book??? I think he has a buttonhole that has one pointed end.....

I need to go digging...that is a pretty welt!!

Hi, Nancy, I think it's actually quite simple. You sew your welts to the fashion fabric as you would normally do. Then you still slash the fabric in a V but the point of the V should not be towards the center of the welts, like it normally is - like this: > - but towards the ends of the welts - like this: < - <. Then you sew the resulting triangles to the welts. Hope that helps.

I do have KK's book. I was was thinking about this and I think that I will do what Claire Schaeffer calls a 'Porthole Pocket'
If I make a template for the pocket for stitching and turn it, clipping the corners and the point I can add strip welts to make the welts and then just sew the pocket bags to them. The opening is edge stitched.
