Back pockets?

user-182293 | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Hi Ladies!  I have just learned to make slacks with front pockets–that FITS.. But it has finally occurred to me that not one of my patterns shows how to put pockets in the back.  Been reading about the Welt pocket and I am pretty sure I will never get that right-but anyways-  are back pockets out for now??  Just wondering. Thanks.

    I think it depends on your rear-end!  The placement of pockets  on the backside can sometimes make it look bigger or smaller.  It depends on your torso length, etc.  There was a recent articl in INSTYLE magazine about buying jeans and they devoted a page to this.
