Honeybee Shirt: Pocket or No Pocket?

DragonCon Countdown: 24 days!

Ok while not really DragonCon related, I used the honeybee fabric that I bought from Spoonflower to make a shirt for my Metro Atlanta Beekeeping meeting on Wednesday. With the colors I chose, it is also something White and Gold I can wear on game days for Georgia Tech!

Only issue is from the front, you can't see the amazing bee fabric so I'm considering adding a pocket to add a pop of color and show off the fabric. Which one do you like better?

I used two different styles of fabric to make the shirt, the off-white is stretchy and the honeybee's are just a silky faille (woven, not-strecthy). I'm not sure I would do this again, because I had to make some gather's in the back to make it look right. I'm still learning so much about sewing this summer. I'm still finding places I have issues: hems, collars, which stitch to use, which needle to use. 

Love the pattern on the back, not too busy for my normal un-patterned self!

I haven't sewed the pocket on yet and still have plenty of fabric to cut a more centered pattern, so pocket or no pocket?
