A first-grader from Arkansas might be to thank for Old Navy creating real pockets in their girls' jeans.
Kamryn Gardner, of Evening Star Elementary School in Bentonville, Ark., wrote a letter to the clothing retailer asking them to make jeans with real pockets, just like the designs for boys.
"Dear Old Navy. I do not like that the front pockets of the girls' jeans are fake," Gardner wrote in a letter shared by Evening Star on Facebook.
She explained, "I want front pockets because I want to put my hands in them. I also would like to put things in them."

"Would you consider making girls jeans with front pockets that are not fake. Thank you for reading my request," the first-grader ended her letter.
Old Navy got back to her with a note revealing they plan to make the new product and sent her two pairs of jeans and jean shorts with real pockets in them.
"Thank you so much for taking the time to write us about pockets on girl's jeans," a handwritten letter from Old Navy to Kamryn said. "The Old Navy kids product team appreciates your information, it's great feedback for us as we develop new product."
Gardner's elementary school proudly commended her, writing, "Now, that's using your voice! Way to go, Kamryn!"
Old Navy and Gap, Inc. did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request to comment.
Another post from the Bentonville Schools Facebook page said, "Oh, the power of persuasion especially when you're adorable!"
"Kamryn, you proudly own those pockets! Kudos to Old Navy for making this first grader's day and ours!" the post said.
