1944 House Dress -- Pockets or Not?

Dear readers,

If you remember, I produced a 1944 House Dress in June.  I love it. I love the snaps, and it's so comfortable.  One of my favorites.
However.
I didn't add the pockets.
What do you think -- do the pockets add to the dress?  I'm thinking about it.   The print I think is enough.  The pockets below are not folded yet for the SA, and are pinned to the dress for conceptualization.

Yeah, OR
Nay:
J. thought the pockets made the dress too costumey.  I tend to agree.  But when I was reviewing the pictures after an absence -- I had to ask.

XOXO, Pam

  1. Since you asked, I don't really like the pockets in black. Do you have any scraps left of the print? Maybe take a cue from the pattern envelope and use the print but add a black trim?

  2. That is a great idea Debbie!! I'm so glad I asked -- Yes, I do have some fabric left (I think)! Fantastic idea! And, I do miss something for lipstick.

  3. Yes, now I just have to find the materials! I know I have it. I cut out pockets in that material originally --- I hope I saved them!
