Sometimes in sewing, we must make changes to sewing pattern pieces to create a better looking finished product. Don't be afraid to do that. A sewing pattern is merely a guide, nothing more. The pattern police aren't going to come knocking on your door if you change it! Think it through, test it and if it gives you the look you want, just do it. You are the designer!
For example: Does the bulk in pocket flaps drive you crazy? Does it seem impossible to make them look flat with all those lumpy seam allowances in that small area.
