This is a little thing but it’s been nagging me forever.
What do you call the kind of pocket seen in this Flickr set (Simplicity 4717, 1943). (This is my set; I made the dress a couple of years ago.)
I’ve gotten in the habit of thinking of them as “Colonial pockets” because they’re similar to the pockets women wore as a separate accessory before pockets installed in clothing became common, but I know that that’s only my lazy term for them and they must have a proper name. Unfortunately, since I don’t know what that name is, I can’t search for it, and since they’re not a terribly common kind of pocket they’re not coming up on my various “types of pockets” searches.
