The SE drawing shows the slash pocket at what looks about a 30 degree angle from vertical; the sewing guide shows it at a very slight angle, maybe 5 degrees; the pattern piece drafts with it vertical. Has anybody experimented with the angle? Would one go into PE and ungroup the pocket bag, then rote only the slash box? (On a patterned fabric, would one rotate the welt piece by the same angle?)
I'm thinking of using this pocket with a sport zipper rather than a welt, for a fleece vest. Any advice?

I never use pmb pockets. I always use one from another pattern or make one up. I just put a pocket in a princess seamed jacket, I combine directions from a different pattern and keep the patterns and directions on file and take them out when needed.
I am sure you can find a pocket that you like in a book or online or in a commercial pattern.
