Pattern Roundup: Men’s Trousers with Welt Pockets

In “Mainely Menswear’s Pattern-Free Method for Welt Pockets,Threads #220, Duane MacLeod demonstrates a method for creating custom welt pockets for the back of any darted pants. If you can measure and cut a few rectangles and sew a straight line, you can make professional-looking welt pockets for any darted pants. Plus, they will be as nicely finished on the inside as on the outside.

Here are some patterns to use while practicing your new skills.
