How lovely! Also, a real history lesson for me.

I never knew there were such things as separate pockets. What a good idea! Yours look lovely in the brocade.

Separate pockets have the advantage of not weighing down your skirt if you put something heavy in your pocket, like keys or wallet. You also only have to make them once and just leave a gap in the side seams of the skirts of your gowns, which is easier than putting in pockets each time. Of course, I also like it that they're historically accurate for the eighteenth century.

Thanks for the note on if you have large hands. I dont know if I would make extra pockets, but I'd put them into the dress...LOL But I am not historically accurate.
