The Pocket Poppet is a jersey women’s cardigan that collapses into a built-in nylon ripstop pocket concealed on the interior back of the sweater. It’s designed for stowing in a handbag or glove box and perfect for frosty airplanes and cubicles or frozen-food aisles.
Ruching on the sleeves — a nice detail — keeps them at three-quarter length without constant re-scrunching. The pocket creates no bulge at the small of the back, thanks in part to box pleats that start slightly higher than the natural waist on the Classic style and a gathered seam in the same vicinity on the Lotus style.
On the downside, when the cardigan is worn, the pocket’s the Velcro closure is exposed to the shirt you’re wearing beneath, so there’s a chance of snagging delicate fabrics or knits.
