Pork chop pockets.....

Started 1355143010.827 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1355387139.73 by TY

This is a pre-coffee post so it's probably coming from a grouchy place, but that term --pork chop pocket-- is really annoying.

Carry on......

haha no I agree -- and I 'have' had my coffee. Sounds like it's for carrying groceries?. Also 'welt' pockets (sounds like an emergency room visit might be advisable?). And 'patch' pockets (maybe something left over from the Great Depression?).

In my youth, I sewed and tailored ALL my clothing....read pattern books and followed fashion....and I never..NEVER heard that term....

I think the vocal needle is stuck on that one....

OK......I saw the title of this thread and thought I'd wandered into the recipe forum, and that we were talking about stuffing pork chops!!

Nope, I'm in Fashion -- and what in the world is a "pork chop pocket"? And who on QVC used the term? Never in my long life have i heard of a pork chop pocket.

I agree!! It is so annoying! And to be honest, I don't get the obsession QVC has with pockets in general. The hosts always make such a big deal about how you can carry Kleenex, keys wallets and whatever in your pockets. I never do that!

I have sewn quite a bit in my earlier life, and have put in pockets of different kinds into garments. I have never ever heard that term other than from a certain a.m. host--and I don't consider her a fashion maven.

I read the title and thought someone was going to post a recipe to stuff a pork chop!

I know it's petty but that term doesn't appeal to me either, it's kinda cringy.

Well some of us, that would include me, love pockets and if a jacket hasn't any we won't buy it.

I thought this was about a recipe, too, so I didn't look @ this right away. What IS a pork chop pocket &, for that matter, what is a welt pocket?

As you can probably tell, I have never done much sewing (except for embroidery & cross stitch but not this kind of sewing).

In home ec in high school (that was when girls had to take home ec & boys had to take shop or I would have been in shop Wink), I somehow managed to put the zipper inside out in the one skirt we had to do, got an F & never wanted to do that type of sewing again! {#emotions_dlg.blink}

I had never heard the term either, until I heard Pat James Dementri talk about it on a clothing show. It was regarding a pair of D&Co. pants.

I was so bad my dad had to finish my home ec. Project, and even I know what a pork chop pocket is.

I didnt think porkchop pocket was a real term. I thought I heard Jayne say Pat calls it that because the pocket resembles a porkchop. So I thought Pat made it up.

So this term is a real fashion term?!

I think a porckchop pocket is a patch pocket on the front of a pair of jeans, imagine the narrow end of the porkchop at the top and the wide end at the bottom. You probably had a pair of high waisted flared jeans in the 1970s with this style of pocket. You might also see this style of pocket on outerwear like a duffle coat.
