Back pockets?

just learning's picture

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.
