I’m still working on fashion illustration skills to better describe construction details (so I don’t have to make prototypes just to talk in detail about a pocket). The best practice I’ve found is just drawing bags I see out in the wild.

I was fascinated by the side gusset on this lil guy. It seemed like a normal accordion construction at first, but the front and back are actually separate pouches that seem like they’re floating on either side of the main compartment. That construction also offers a great opportunity for color blocking and mixing leather textures.
