In general I loathe clothing with pockets.
I have a few dresses I made with pockets, but those were for specific purposes(doing home improvements)
I prefer that even my aprons be sans pocket.
How do I carry multiple items?
Planning and patience.
There's no mystical/religious reason for it, it's just a matter of style.
The floral is the main color, the stripey for the lining and the orange for the waistband.
It's a pretty different color scheme from my norm.
