Split-crotch cotton knickers, 1870s

Knickers that were narrow at the knee were suitable for wear under dresses with long fitted torsos. By 1900 the style changed to full and frilly at the knee, made possible by the use of lightweight fabric.

Made from sturdy cotton broadcloth, the knickers have knees decorated with rows of tucks and with pretty bands of eyelet. They close in back at the waist with a button.

The condition is excellent and wearable.

It measures: 33" waist and 28" length.
