Women's pants in general have useless pockets. Why can't they have pockets that a normal wallet or smart phone can fit into??
Cargo pants aren't always easy to find (or out of budget). I like women's pants that are straight or boot cut and lower rise (inch or two below belly button). I carry everything in my pockets.
I'm wondering if it's easy/worthwhile to learn to sew so I can replace or increase the size of the shallow hand pockets as well as add side pockets to ordinary women's pants. Or am I not looking at this the right way? Men's pants seem to be rather heavy and not fit nearly as well as womens...
I often find myself wanting to modify clothes to my liking. Is sewing easy to do? I don't want things to look ugly homemade, it would be nice to be able to wear these clothes to a casual office work environment and not look too sloppy.
