Welcome to a new sewing class, in today’s class I’m going to teach you how to sew a double welt pocket.
This pocket is also known as a double jetted pocket and it is a pocket that we can find in different types of garments but it is more common to find it in jackets and coats.
In today’s class, I am going to give you some patterns so that we can sew this pocket together, you will find the files just below the video of the class.
Make sure you print the patterns in real size and remember that you have to pre-shrunk the fabric before cutting it.
To make sure that you can see today’s class better, I’m going to use a red thread that contrasts with the calico so you don’t miss any detail.
Today’s class starts by showing you the pattern pieces in detail and explaining the different markings you’ll find on them.
Remember to follow the cutting and fusing/interfacing instructions for the patterns.
As you will see in today’s class, this pocket uses different measurements of seam allowance so it is important that you mark all the notches
As always, if you have any questions about today’s class, remember that you can send me an email through your account, in the support section.

As you already know, the best way to learn sewing is by sewing yourself, so for today’s class, I’m going to ask you to print the patterns that you can find below the video class.
Sew at least one double welt pocket using a contrasting thread so I can see how you’ve sewn it.
Please try to send clear photos of the pocket and remember to include different photos so I can give you better feedback.
I also need you to include photos of the sewing progress.
