Description:
These white drawers are made of cotton and have a button closure on the back of the waist. They have embroidery at the leg openings and the crotch is open. Earlier versions of women's drawers had an open crotch for hygiene purposes. It was possible that once a corset was put on, drawers were unable to be pulled down so the crotch was left unsewn.

circa 1900 – 1920
