Hello everyone…. I made a practice welt pocket using the instructions in Ann Steeves’ article in Threads #122 and it turned out beautifully….I’d avoided these pockets for years because of other people’s horror stories and am really pleased to be able to add them to my sewing repertoire.. Thank You Ms. Steeves for my favorite Threads article of the last few years !…
I do have a question, though… I’m making a friend’s suit for his wedding this summer and would like to add these pockets to the back of the pants (made of a medium weight khaki ) … Can I follow this procedure for welt pockets on an unlined, washable garment ? I’m kind of concerned about the patch of fusible interfacing (applied to the wrong side of the welt)… I usually don’t use fusibles because they either decompose or bubble after a few washings….
Anyone have any words of wisdom ?
Thanks for listening…..
