Pockets around the web: Grainline Patterns Farrow Dress (sewing pattern)

The Grainline Farrow Dress caught my eye in a nice blog post with lots of views by Closet Case Patterns.  It appears to have generous pockets, though with the very loose dress structure I'm not sure how much pocket contents might distort the dress shape.  Might depend on the fabric used.  If you've made it, let me know!

Pockets around the web: Old Navy Utility Shirt Dress

Here's a nice olive-green shirt dress (price slightly reduced) with pockets.  You can zoom in on the picture to see the pocket outlines.  They don't look huge, but probably would hold the basics (i.e. pretty decent for a dress).  The non-pocket aspects of the dress are reviewed here, where I first saw it.  If anyone has one and wants to provide some pocket measurements, send me a note or leave a comment!

Pockets around the web: Duluth Trading Co. Women's Fire Hose Work Pants

Let's have some more work pants options.  The Duluth Trading Co.'s Women's Fire Hose Work Pants look tough and with practical pockets.  Here's a long review of the men's pants, with a shorter note at the end on the women's pants (both reviews are very positive).  They have several cuts (regular; slim in two versions: one without knee pad slots but with eight pockets and one with knee pad slots with seven pockets; and bootcut), plus a fleece-lined version!

Pockets around the web: Red Ants Work Pants

While browsing around for pockets recently I came across Red Ants Work Pants.  They say the pockets will hold a 3x5" notebook and more!  Plus, they come in two fits (straight and curvy) and give sizing based on measurements instead of the usual undecipherable women's numbering sizes.  They look like great field or work pants, are made in the USA, and they sound like they have a good return policy.  Also, if you prefer shorts, they have a practical long-inseam shorts version! Pocket readers, have any of you tried these?

Pockets around the web: Everybody Kiki's circle dress

I think this is a first in my internet pocket browsing.  Here is a dress that actually includes the SIZE of the pocket width (6 1/2" at the widest point!) in the description!  Way cool!

Pockets around the web: Modcloth dresses

One online retailer, Modcloth, has a whole section devoted to dresses with pockets!  No more sorting through items one by one.  These are all pocketed.
