Featured in the PR book!
I forget where I originally read this tip -- it might've been a back issue of Threads. Anyway, to help prevent the bias edge of a slant pocket from stretching, cut the pocket facing piece so that the grainline is running parallel to the slanted edge. The skirt or pants piece will be cut on the bias, but the pocket lining will be on the straight of grain and it will help stabilize that edge as the garment is worn. Note that this won't work for curved pockets -- it must be fairly straight!
