The specimen in question is a size 6. There are two welt pockets in the flared skirt along the side seams. The opening is 5", placed almost vertically. The pocket tends to hang downwards so there's about 4 1/2" from the bottom edge of the opening to the deepest part of the pocket. It's about 9" from the top edge of the opening to the deepest part of the pocket. The pocket is rounded and at most 5 1/2" from the opening wide. Because the dress material is fairly stiff, it doesn't show too much when I put my usual contents (keys, wallet, phone) into the pockets, and they did all fit nicely. Because the pockets are on the dress and it's not fitted closely (it sits at the natural waist and flares out in the skirt), pocket contents will flop about and hit your legs if you do anything energetic, like dancing. One side of the pocket is lined so that it does not stick to the dress, and the dress is lined so the pockets won't stick to you (or tights) either. These pockets rate decent for a dress!
|The welt pocket openings are well-camouflaged with the zig-zags and matching stripe placement.|
