Navy Striped Romper

Navy Striped Romper | Maya UnMarketed

I have a question: When did things become “stripe” instead of “striped”? Or “scallop” instead of “scalloped,” etc.? As a lifelong language lover and {recovering} Creature of Habit, I couldn’t help but notice the shift during recent perusals of other blogs and of course online shopping sites. At some point in recent-ish history things became double nouns (“stripe” and “romper”) instead of adjectives followed by nouns (“striped romper”). Or maybe the stripes rebelled against being portrayed in the past tense?!?
