    Love this pattern but in the past have had problems with on seam pockets. Because my abdomen is rounded they tend to gape and form wrinkles after sitting. This type of pant is usually very fitted in the body. Is there a way to convert the pockets to a slant opening to alleviate the pulling at the side seam? Any suggestions?

    I think it would be quite easy. When you sew the trouser front to the pocket bag you’d simply sew it at an angle – a bit like the Art Museum trousers.
    Then you just need to ensure that the pocket stay (which would then form the side seam above the bottom of the pocket opening) is wide enough that none of the pocket facing shows.
