I sewed on the two top pockets using my Wilson Rotary sewing machine. I used a buttonholer attached to my Wilson to make the buttonholes in the flaps.
Instead of the lower patch pockets, I added welt pockets like my shacket. I didn't keep good notes about the pockets, so I measured my shacket to see where to put them. First I watched this Video to refresh my memory.
I cut out two 8" by 6" pieces of material and interfaced them.
Then I folded them right sides together, making them 8" by 3" . I sewed 5/8" from each side.
I turned to form the welts.
With seam allowances included I measured the openings should be 4 3/4 inches from bottom edge, and 3 5/8 and 7 1/4 from sides.

Now it needs lining, collar, cuffs, button placket, and hem.
Time to start sewing.
Thanks for stopping.
