I have two questions. On several spring styles, I saw a mention of quarter pocket with no illustration. Does anyone know what this is and hwo big. I had seen it also for a knit travel pant and am wanting to make a ponti knit pant and would like some front pockets. Does anyone have any suggestions for something unobtrusive, but will still hold a tissue, folding money, credit card?

The other question is about how to layout unmatched stripes on pants. Does one keep the pattern moving around the body or is each leg made symetrical? Thanks for all help. JoAnn

I think the quarter pocket is about the size of that mini-change pocket in Jeans. If you are wanting to put a tiny pocket for credit cards into knit pants, you can use the credit card as a guide as to the size of the pocket - just make its finished size slightly larger than the dimensions of what you want to put into the pocket.

As for the stripes question, as far as I know, there's no set standard - it's your preference. Make a second copy of your pants leg pattern (reversed so you have both left and right leg versions) and lay the patterns on the fabric. The stripes should show through the pattern paper and you can use your eye to decide where you want the stripes to fall.

A quarter pocket is the slanted version of the side in-seam pocket. I first encountered in in mens wear. Google quarter  pocket,

I know I responded to your question last week but my post seems to have disappeared in the ether.  In V3, and I assume V4, open Yardage Calculator.  On the left side of the screen is a button Create Plaid.  Press this button and it opens another window.  You can create plaids or stripes in this window.  I would suggest that you recreate your stripe in this window then lay your pattern pieces over it.  Move the pattern around until you find the layout that pleases you.

I did read your post last week. Thank you. I had not thought of laying it out in yardage calculator. Now on a bright day, I have to decide if their is a nap or not. I did hang the fabric on my dress form and it looks better if it is mirrored. Thanks to Coopie also for the quarter pocket info. I had searched on Yahoo but not on Google. JoAnn
