Jackie Coat Sewalong – Pattern Hack! Patch Pockets

http://iconicpatterns.com/2014/07/20/patch-pocket-for-jackie-coat/#.U8sIILHm5WQ

The welt pockets on Jackie are a beautiful design element but can be tricky to execute well.  If you would like an easier pocket option for your Jackie coat, or would prefer patch pockets for design reasons, then Lena from Iconic Patterns has a lovely free pattern hack for you today.

Not just any patch pocket, of course.  Lena has a tutorial on her website for “a self-faced, lined, interfaced pocket that will look great,
last a long time and will give you another sewing technique to squirrel
away for the future projects”.

Hop on over for a beautifully written and illustrated tutorial that will take your patch pockets to a whole other level here.
