I should have posted this weeks ago, but, well, life has kind of gotten in the way. Here's a link to the original post so you can tie the two together. So, this is how I move front pockets when tailoring a pair of pants.
As you can see the side of the pants is a smooth line, but at the waist I have a little of the pocket peaking above the waistline. This had to do with the way Hubby's pants needed to be tailored. (Interesting note: less than 12% of the people in any given size are actually those measurements.) I just trim that little bit off. To me having the side of the pocket lying right is more important than that little bit at the top of the pocket that needs trimmed off.
I hope everybody is having a good day!
