Inverted pocket

Does anyone know how to make a pocket like the one pictured? My soon to be lives this style of pocket and I can't find any tutorials anywhere.


  1. Hello! I'm new to your blog. . . Found you via Sew Retro, and added you to my feed because I'm loving your super cute retro dresses! Anyhow. . .

    This pocket looks to me like a "single welt pocket." Here is a tutorial on how to make one:

    Hope this helps! :)

  2. Hi
    This is a single welt pocket.
    Check out Palmer and Pletch's website.
    They have a dvd on making jackets, and it shows how to make this type of welt pocket. It's the clearest explanation I've ever seen, and I've found all their dvds to be a great source of inspiration and clearly explained techniques.
    Hope this helps

  3. Thanks so much for the help. I may try it out on this shirt I am making.

  4. Ok even after reading the tutorial, I am still confused.
