Double welt pocket with flap by the butterfly method
by Mayra Cecilia
The double welt pocket with flap using the butterfly method is a really easy and contemporary technique to make a pocket and attach a flap at the same time.This new technique using the butterfly method works well on both thin or thick fabrics. It can even be used on leather and suede as well as with thick wools and cashmere coats.
This is a simpler and faster way to approach the making of this pocket while it still shows elegant and sophisticated detail. This technique is also used in the making of bound or French buttonholes for tailored coats which I will address in another tutorial. While this technique is relatively simpler than others, it is still probably something for intermediate sewers and above. You can find the complete directions for this technique in the link below.
