Dresses with pockets are so wearable, why don’t more dresses come with pockets! We absolutely loved this article in the Independent about a bride who insisted that her bridesmaid’s dresses had pockets the tweet went viral, it seems that everyone likes the idea of dresses with pockets – as nell says, they’re ideal for storing snacks!
We share 3 dress patterns with pockets and we’ve bundled these up with a pack of high quality Gutermann thread – all for half the usual price, so a real bargain for boosting your #memade wardrobe. See all the pics below of real dressmakers who have sewn up these patterns.
My friend got married last month and her dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses ALL HAD POCKETS.
