New tag: skirt without a front section

Posted under General

Hmm, doesn't a half-skirt specifically refer to skirts missing either the left or right side, not the front?

Or am I wrong and the term also applies to any skirt missing any portion, be it front, left, or whatever?

    What about waist cape? Capes don't cover the front like cloaks do, and it only goes from the waist down.

    I'd be more inclined to call them a skirt, especially since a lot of the examples given here share a frilly skirt look.

    Depending on what's agreed upon, should they be separated into *_skirt and *_dress?

    With this tag, it would probably be better to use it to cover both skirts and the skirts of dresses and not split it.

  • So deciding whether to use this or waist_cape will have to be judged case by case for each image, depending on if the clothing looks like it's being used as a cape or not.

    And overskirt only applies when worn over another skirt or pants.

    If half-skirt is the applicable tag (again, unsure if open front skirts can be called half-skirts) then we may need some other tags to specify which side the skirt opens on.

    If we don't go with that, then we could simply use either open-front_skirt or frontless_skirt. I'm leaning towards the latter because I think "open-front" also describes skirts with a slit in front and not just skirts that lack the front.

    frontless_bottom? Could apply to skirts/dresses/hakama/etc.

    Not a hakama. The whole point of a hakama is to hide the wearer's stance and feet, so it has to be a solid skirt. Also I would rather not lump something like post #613160 with examples in the opening post.

    I would rather a single tag for both "over-skirt" and "crotch-less-skirt" cases (even if "overskirt" rings well).

    I'm in favour of open-front/back_skirt/dress/pants(?), as well as using overskirt for what is describes.
