To make a "Bush Shirt" with a single patch pocket, the pocket is pinned into place on the front of the shirt. The Scout Shirt has two breast pockets, with flaps that button down over.  BP would have had two flap pockets on the front instead of a single patch pocket.  This can be seen at the end of the book.

When the front panel of the shirt has been finished, the back panel can be placed onto the front. Make sure the fine fabric sides face each other.
