For the past few
hours days, I’ve tried to perfect the welt pocket. What a stressful experience! Why am I messing around with welt pockets? Because I’m in desperate need of pants. Over the past year I’ve lost a couple of pounds and now my pants no longer fit properly. I’ve been to several stores trying on pants and I can’t seem to find a pair that fit like I want them.
Bright idea: Just make your own!
Here I am, back in the sewing saddle and because I like to challenge myself I picked a pattern (Vogue 2907-View A) that has welt pockets. Now, I’ve worked on welts once before and was incredibly unsuccessful. My results above are less than perfect, but I’ll be damned if I take it out to reconstruct.
I’m worn out ! And I only did one! Would it look weird if I only had one pocket in the back? *sigh*
Somebody, please, send some magic fitting vibes my way to make sure that these pants fit. I worked hard on that pocket!
