I made the Take Manhattan tunic from the awesome book Twinkle Sews by Wenlan Chia, but I’ve come to the final stages and I can’t decide how I want the front pocket to look…. So I figured I’d ask the Burdastyle community for help! :)
I chose a soft, muted plaid and I can’t decide if I should have the pocket’s fabric on a diagonal (see first fabric-closeup photo), or slightly shifted (see second photo), or match it exactly…. What do you guys think? I kind of like the diagonal myself, but am wondering if it might be too busy. I don’t have enough fabric to cut out multiple pockets… Please help!!!!
