One of my art pals sent me links to a bunch of articles about pockets -- namely, rants about how the pockets in women's clothing are always much smaller than those in men's clothing. I read them all and found myself getting madder the more I read. Because they are so right!!
Read the best ones here, and here.
Fortunately those of us who know how to sew can remedy the situation. I can't count the number of readymade garments that I have augmented with better pockets, or pattern-made garments that I have improved with more pockets. Among my greatest hits was a pair of pants that I cut off to knee-length, then used the cut-off fabric to put huge cargo pockets on both thighs.
In my closet right now are a pair of jeans with the shallowest pockets I've seen in ages.
And a suede-like shirt that had no pockets at all! What were they thinking!! Even if you carry a handbag, which I don't, where do you put a Kleenex or a Chapstick?
