Double welt pocket with flap by the butterfly method

Posted by on Jul 23, 2017


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 cashmeres 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.

Materials: a scrap of fabric of 12″ x 16″ one rectangle of 8″ x 15″ (20cm x 38cm) for pocket bag one rectangle that is at least 7″ x 7″ of fusible interfacing suitable for the thickness of the fabric you are using thread sewing ruler tailor's chalk or erasable pen.
