Edwardian Combination Underwear
Currently I am making a new Edwardian underwear set. It's the Past Patterns Ladies Underwear Combination, the version with circular drawers. The pattern is for closed drawers. But I converted it to open drawers for convenience. I don't want to have to take of my entire costume everytime I need to go to the bathroom. The circular drawers are a little bit fuller that I thought they would be. Which makes them look a little like a skirt when the combination underwear is on. Which is nice. But I wonder if I will still be able to wear a petticoat combination over it.
Here are some period examples
