Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class I’m going to teach you how to draft a double jet/welt pocket.
In previous classes, I have already taught you how to sew this pocket, today it is time to learn how to make its patterns so that you know how to transform them as you like.
Today’s class begins by drafting the pocket master pattern.
In case you don’t remember, the master pattern is the pattern that we have to trace to get the different pattern pieces that makes up this pocket.
For this, it is important that you use paper that is a little translucent but if you use paper that is not translucent you can use the tracing table as I do.
Although you can also lean on the window to trace your patterns.
At the end of the class, I will show you the most common modifications that we can find.
The first modification we will do is to protect the facing from your skin, this is used when we work with fabrics that are not pleasant to the touch.
The second modification will be to join the front lining with the back lining to create a single pattern, this is used if we want to save a seam but be careful since depending on the fabric it may be very thick.
As always I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to make the same sample that I have done but remember that you can change them as you like.
Remember that if you have any questions about today’s class, you can always send me an email, through your user account, in the support section.

You already know that the best way to learn industrial pattern making is by making patterns, so for today’s class, I’m going to ask you to make the double welt/jet pocket.
It is important that you mark all the patterns with their notches, drills and annotations.
Although this is optional, I recommend that you use the same color system that I use – one of the most common in fashion factories.
Please try to send me photos where the patterns and their annotations are clearly visible.
