Zippered Welt Pockets
The evolution of my interior pockets.
I enjoy pattern testing. I test as many as I am able to because I like having input on patterns I will use in the process so that I can have my questions and thoughts addressed directly by the pattern creator during the process and for certain end up with a pattern that works for me and what I want to accomplish.
This pattern test was for The Nestle Down add on to the Men's and Women's Trail Blazer Vest by Twig & Tale pattern company. Obviously to test the insert the actual vest had to be sewn. So I have at this point now made a few vests. The one thing lacking for our needs in the pattern was zippered inside pockets.
I find open interior pockets rather useless. No matter what I do my stuff just falls right out of the stupid things. And lets face it smart phones cost an arm and a leg so nobody is trying to drop their blasted phone. I like the security when chasing my heathens of knowing that no matter where I must crawl or climb and whatever depth of hell they require I tunnel through my phone is going to still be right where I put it. Also on long walks the ability to still use my earbuds while warmly zipped up and without worry of dropping my device is a no brainer.
What You Need
- pattern for what you are sewing
- fabric to complete your pattern
- scraps of woven fabric a few inches larger than desired pocket finished size
