Patch pockets, a detail I rarely add to a jacket other than when requested. There are many different methods to applying a patch pocket, the one demonstrated here is by far the easiest. The patch is bagged out with cotton silseasa, this gives added strength to the cloth pocket and helps prevents the patch from wearing over time. Bunches of keys are the enemy of patch pockets.
The patch is sewn round on the machine and turned out through a small hole in the silseasa, the edges are baste out so the patch is even on all sides. Basted to the forepart, the patch is finished stitched using a pick stitch, a back stitch could also be used if you wanted the hand stitch to be visible.
