^ Well, we certainly use both now ... if anyone has a copy of the OED, it has the full story on everything ...

just wondering if there is a name for this...
the bag, the design of the flap, i've seen it on a pocket,
the way the sides curve down to a point in the centre, with a button
does the pocket have a name?

^ I'm not aware of one ... I guess you could call it a bit of a scallop

wow you're right
scalloped pockets

thank you

the pocket i have seen is quite like the one in the picture/s (i put the link there)
but where the button is in the center, the point is not round
but very sharp
like a V
the scallops go down into a V
maybe just part of the design.. i thought maybe i see it often in old movies with military scenes

i would say that would "count" as a double breast coat... although the seam seems to stop where the buttoning ends, and it becomes a skirt below that point.
interesting construction, but i wonder how would you wear that... there aren't that many events (sp. in winter) when you wouldnt remove your coat, are there? it'd be just a little weird to see someone taking off her jacket by sliding it down to her feet...
a shopping outfit perhaps? you can walk around the streets without being cold, and you only have to remove one piece of clothing in the fitting rooms! how practical! :p

What is the style of this neckline called? It's square, but it's very steep and hits very closely to the start of armhole. I did some searching, and "empire neckline" showed up, but I can't quite tell if that must be accompanied by the empire waist. Hm.. Anyone?

Image found at moonratus.tumblr.com who has posted the question herself.

I don't know if there is a name for the neckline, but I've seen that in medieval costume. Actually a strapless bodice called kirtle, and the sleeve/back piece is separate and worn over top. Design changes though, so sometimes they are one-piece. Don't know the name of the sleeve garment, I did notice that there was a couple shown in recent collections at fashion week

The Chanel dress is one piece, connected by the double breasted feature and then it flares out @ what I guess you could call the princess seam line or the R/L of the placket. It looks like a pencil skirt with a cropped jacket, but I really don't think it is...It's a coat dress and people do wear them. Very chic really.

what does these pleats in front of the dress call? not only this dress, there are some pants have pleats like that. I wonder if there's a term?
