My Creative Space: Pocket, or not?



Today in my creative space I am going to be basically sitting back and considering adding a pocket to this top that I made on Monday. 

I made the pocket, pinned it on ready to sew...then took it off and wore the top pocket-less yesterday.  Still thinking about if I like the pocket idea or not.  Does it look too much like a little girls' top with the pocket? 


My other idea instead of the pocket is to add a  narrow trim to the lower edge in the floral fabric.  I have managed to identify the fabric as Amy Butler Morning Glory and I found a few websites where I can get more of it.  A trim would be a more conservative addition to the top.  You can tell I am a bit on the conservative side as I am hestitating about the pocket...

What do you think?  Fun pocket, or serious trim?  I would love to hear your opinions.

Head on over to Kootoyoo for all the fun of Creative Space.

I love the pocket, & the sleeves are gorgeous, but I think a trim would look very nice, too...not very helpful, sorry!

I love the pocket, but it depends on where you're wearing it... I think the trim would suit all occassions.

the pocket is perfect!

Fun trim.

Which is not, I promise, sitting on the fence.

I'll be the lone dissenter - no pocket!! It doesn't need it - looks great without.

I think a trim and no pocket would probably suit it better if you were worried about the pocket at the beginning. Love it. I bet it looks great on. I've just remembered that I promised to email you rocket backpack pics on Monday. So sorry! Completely forgot. Shall go and do it now.

pocket! Definately pocket. It is super cute.

Adriana said...

Go with the trim... Yep.
But then again... the pocket is really cute too.
I think it already looks beautiful, so I'm sure that whatever you decide will be lovely!

Sorry... I'm not much help.

It definitely looks more grown up without the pocket. Me, I like the pocket but why don't you go for the trim if you're not sure. A lovely top whatever you choose.

I'd go the pocket. It gives the top a focal point and I love the way its positioned. Considering that the responses are split, why dont you make two.. one with and one without?

I vote no pocket - when I first saw the photo with the pocket before reading the entry I actually did think it was a child's top. I do think a trim is a great idea though. Would love to see how it looks on you!

I think no pocket and some trim would be superb - what did you end up doing?
