Placing the Welt Pocket in Jacket Lining

I’m glad I took time to sew a test pocket using my fabric scraps. The faux suede has a slick satin back and I needed to know how it would behave before I add it to the jacket lining.
My conclusion was to add acetate for the pocket bag to reduce bulk and avoid ridges when ironing. I also chose to make the welt wider for style reasons. And I went with a non-fusible facing because it will not flatten the ripples of the fabric pattern. Above is the final pocket in the lining, ready for assembly.
