Lined Bound Buttonhole Pockets

The Book says this pocket, “resembles a bound buttonhole pocket, and is used when the garment is made of heavier or bulkier weight fabric…A lining is required for the inside pocket pieces to prevent bulk.”

These are the pieces you need for this pocket: an under pocket lining, two 1.5 inch welts, 2 inch facing, and a top pocket lining that is .5 inch longer than the under pocket lining.
