How to add zipped, welt pockets to anything

I’ve been working on the Shoalhaven Shacket from Muna and Broad https://www.munaandbroad.com/collections/patterns/products/shoalhaven-shacket-sewing-pattern-pdf.

And I decided to add zipped, welt pockets. I used to make a lot of bags with zip pockets and the technique is basically the same. this is how I did it.

The Shacket already has these flap pockets, so I decided to add zipped, welt pockets too.
These are the dimensions I use for the welt pocket fabric and lining pieces – don’t cut the hole yet! There are 2″ from the top of the pattern piece down to the top of the slot.
