White cotton petticoat with drawstring waistband and deep frill at bottom.
Petticoats were worn by women as an undergarment from the 16th century onwards for warmth and fashion. Petticoats gave the wearer the fashionable shape of the time, full or narrow. During the 20th century petticoats became a less common addition to a woman's wardrobe.
