DH loves cargo pockets and is always pointing out cool cargo pockets on RTW pants we see around. So I get inventive. RTW pockets aren't flat they always have fullness built into them. I think I have finally figured that out. I was wathching a sewing with Nancy episode on PBS and they were making little bags on the serger. She sewed down both sides and the bottom on the serger. Then she basically put side seam to bottom seam and serged off the corner. When turned right side out this created depth in the bag. THen http://sewtakeahike.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2008/10/05/100_3371.jpg. Ok so I used this same method, I turn pocket down 1/2" on sides and bottom then turn right sides together matching bottom edge to side edge and serge across the corner. Turn back aroudn and I have depth.

I also noticed RTW cargo's will hve cargo pockets on top of cargo pockets, so I always play around with adding pockets to my pocket in different ways. Also, DH always complains about how the pockets are closed so I thought I had it with the insersted zipper at the top> so this kind of shows the depth (I add topstitching) the pocket on pocket and the zipper.

As a note DH doesn't like the zipper because you can't open it with one hand. Next I will post pockets with buttons and with magnet connectors.

I love cargo pockets; any pockets, really. Do you suppose your husband would like a deep top slit pocket with a cargo pocket front? Perhaps with the slit pocket underneath kept narrower on one side to hold sunglasses upright or to snugly hang onto a wallet. I've also seen a side entry pocket low on the pant with the cargo pocket on top. The side entry pocket is open at the top and closed at the bottom to keep things from tumbling out.

Photographer's vests and safari vests are loaded with pocket ideas. And you and he may both want to look at this site. Scottevest

And thank you for your pictures. Our dear friends' son is planning a fall wedding and I want to offer up ideas of how I can help them from my sewing room.

When I first started working with bags and pockets that I wanted to have volume, I found it helpful to have a little box on hand in the correct (or nearly) size to help with visualizing and tidying up the bottom corners of the box construction.
