Just wondering if I'm the only one with a problem concerning, not only the placement of these two pockets, but also emphasizing them with an outline.

Yowza!

Well, look at the model's expression: "Are you kidding me?" !!!

Well, that was my thought, as well--but somebody in the New Vogues thread said it was one of her favorites!

Yeah, it doesn't seem like good design to me. Maybe it's a voting theme, check a box.

The blouse does work without the pockets so not all is lost.

Just thank goodness they aren't circles.. either raising or lowering the pockets would be better.. cute blouse other than the obvious problem.

I like this blouse just fine on the slender model.
Obviously it wouldn't work on someone with huge udders!

I liked it until someone in the other thread made the boobies toasting marshmallow comment, now that's all I can see when I look at it!

What happens when the weather gets cold?!?!? Maybe it's meant to be a barometer blouse?

If those were slightly larger and more of a traditional pocket shape they would be better.

I like the graphic take on this blouse but agree that the placement is a problem. I think it would be cute if the pockets were raised and then offset a bit from one another. That weak ribbon bow would have to go too.
