Fold the welt rectangle lengthwise wrong sides together and press.
Place O on A around the line showing the opening of the pocket on the wrong side of the fabric.
Lay the welt rectangle along the line that indicates the pocket, right sides together.
Then lay the pocket lining M on the top. Stitch between the notches. Lay the pocket facing N on the over side of the line. Stitch between the notches. You should have 3cm in between the two stitching lines.
Check if your lines are really parallel.
Press the seams open.
Trace a line in the midde of the two stitch lines and stop at 1cm from the ends.
Slash the pocket through the marked center line, stopping at the red points.
At each end, clip diagonally toward the corners in a Y shape. Be very careful not to cut through the stitching lines.
Turn the pockets to the inside through the slash and adjust the seams to lay flat. Press from this side, then press again from the right side. Turn the welt up, pushing the welt seam allowance through the slash. Press flat.
Fold back the jacket front to expose the triangles. Pin.
Stitch the triangles to the pocket underlay to secure the corners, backstitching over them a few times. You can use a zipper foot to get close to the base of the triangle.
Stitch the pocket facing to the pocket lining around the remaining edges. Finish the edges of the pocket to prevent raveling. You can now edgestitch all around the outside of your welt.
