So I’ve worn my new pants a couple of times and I have to say, I was feeling pretty self-conscious of the broad, unbroken expanse of fabric covering my rear end. I had only the smallest swatch of fabric left, so I did the only thing I could do and made the decision to sew in some faux single-welt pockets.
Using this tutorial (but without the pocket bag part), I started off with just one, thinking that the only thing scarier than cutting a big hole in the back of perfectly wonderful handmade pants is cutting two that have to exactly match. The first turned out fine (some behind-the-scenes issues, but nothing visible), so after wearing the one-pocketed pants to pick up my son, I took them off and sewed the second. I have to say, I am super happy with the result!
