Adding Pocket to Athleta Dress

I am obsessed with travel clothing as a frequent flyer.  I love this casual dress but with no pockets it wasn't as useful as I like.

The surplice neckline has 2 layers of fabric all the way down to the diagonal seam past the hips, so there is plenty of fabric for storage.  I can actually put stuff down the front of the dress but looks a little awkward if I were actually going to use it in public.  So I installed an invisible zipper on the right side to make a pocket opening.  Only problem is the dress is fairly tight fitting so can't put anything thick in the pocket.
