A petticoat in pale pink silk georgette. It fastens at the rear with metal hooks and eyes. The hem is lavishly embellished: fine Valenciennes lace appliqué criss crosses around panels of textural, appliquéd Irish crochet lace. The hem is most likely so lavishly decorated as it was intended to be seen beneath outer skirts, in the style of this underskirt.
