3. Mark Pockets placement at Fronts. Mark a line of future seam at each Pocket Welt, checking that the Welt will be consistent in width.
Place Pocket Welt wrong side on top of face side of Small Pocket Bag, so that the fold of Welt is directed down; align raw edges of Welt and Pocket Bag. Apply Pocket Welt onto Front, matching marked lines (the Welt will be sandwiched between Front and Pocket Bag on top). Baste all layers at the marked line. Stitch Welt and Pocket Bag to Front.
Place Large Pocket Bag on top of Front, face-to-face, line-on-line with previous seam of attaching the Welt; baste. Stitch Large Pocket Bag to Front at the distance 0,8-1 cm (5/16 – 3/8”) from the seam of Welt.
At the wrong side, check to make sure that seams of Pocket are parallel to each other. Remove basting threads. Cut Pocket entrance between the seams. In corners (about 1-1,5 cm (3/8-5/8”) from each end of pocket entrance) cut fabric diagonally towards ends of seams. Turn Welt and Pocket Bags inside through the pocket opening; turn inside small triangles at the ends. Baste around the pocket opening and press. At the wrong side of garment, bartack small triangles onto Pocket Bag. Align, pin and trim Pocket Bags. Stitch Pocket Bags together; serge allowances. Baste Pocket Welt to the Front, press. Topstitch short ends of Pocket Welt onto Front. Remove all basting threads.

6. Place Front Facing onto Front face-to-face, pin or baste, stitch together at front edges. Note: you should stitch at the Front going from bottom towards neckline. Stitch bottom edge of Front Facing to the bottom hem of garment, exactly at the hemline (where the hem in finished garment is going to be). Clip allowances in bottom corners of Fronts. Under-stitch Front Facings (along front edge seams), stopping the under-stitching seam about 3 cm (1-3/16”) from neckline and from bottom hem.

Place outer and inner Neck Facings together, face-to-face, and stitch together at the top edge and two short edges. Clip allowances in corners, turn out and press the Neck Facing. Place raw edge of outer Neck Facing into neckline of poncho; stitch Facing into the neckline. Stitch lining to the inner raw edges of Front Facings.
