Adding Pocket to Surplice Dress

I am obsessed with pockets, as you can probably tell from my previous posts.  I have allergies and always carry a kleenex with me.  I don't want to sneeze all over everything.  So the problem with fitted knit dresses is where to add the pocket.  I decided this surplice dress has ruching on one side and that's a good place to hide a small pocket.  I used fabric usually used for slips in a slightly lighter color (didn't find an exact match.)  Made an envelope type pocket and sewed it along the top stitching.

And now you can't see it, and the ruching should hide any bumps form the contents.
