I may have just ruined my pants.

This is my rather sad attempt at a welt pocket. Which, frankly, looks awful and won’t lie flat at all. Especially in the corners. Since I already cut the slash, I’m not sure how to salvage this. I could maybe widen the seam allowance and make the welts more narrow, but it may be too late.

Needless to say, this is why welt pockets are on my check the technique list. I’ve never managed a good one yet.

  1. Oh no! (I've never made a welt pocket either. I'm scared!) Since I have very little knowledge about the technique I have no idea how to correct it or make it better. Would sewing it shut and keeping it non-functional work, maybe? As a last resort, I guess you could sew it shut and place a patch pocket over it?


  2. Sorry to hear this. I don't know how to fix it but recommend Tailoring The Classic Guide to Sewing the Perfect Jacket ISBN 1-58923-230-5 to hone your skills in future.
