How to Make a Double Welt Pocket Using the 5 Lines Method

by Mayra Cecilia


I am going to show you how to make a double welt pocket using the traditional, but simplified, tailoring method called “five lines”. There are a few ways to make a double welt pockets, this is just one of them.

Our double welt pocket has “welts” on both sides of the opening. You'll be very familiar with this style of pocket since it is commonly used on men's and women's tailored jackets, lightweight hoodies, light coats, slacks back pockets, or the inside of pockets in the lining of jackets. Unfortunately, this technique isn't suitable for very heavy fabrics or situations where you have to match a design such as stripes.
