Pocket Problem! HELP!?
The good news is... they mostly fit. They need a 1/2" pinched in at the center back top, and I might add a little to the top to prevent panty-peekage, as the finished top edge sits about 1/2" below my navel. (The really good news is that last season's shorts are too big!)
The bad news is... the pockets pull open, which I hate. I could stitch them shut, but that defeats the purpose of having pockets, which I frequently use in my favorite shorts. When I pin them closed, I love the fit, so I don't think I should go up a size.
So, what's the trick? I know there must be one out there somewhere. How do you keep pocket openings flat? Sorry I have no pics to show you, the photographer is otherwise engaged! Thanks in advance!
ETA: Thank you for the quick reply, ladies! I'm going to stitch around the pocket bag on this version, and try extending it into the fly on the next version. I didn't expect any feedback until tomorrow, so this was a pleasant surprise! You guys are the best!!!
