Hello I have a question about what time period was the button and loop closure used on under garments? Like side closures for long line bras, slips. I had a homemade slip once that closed on the side with buttons and fabric loops. The straps in front also has the same type of closure. I don't have a picture of the slip but it was made like a long line bra with a half slip attached . The bra cups were sewn with stitching to make it have body and there was a small pocket in the front. I wonder what that was for. If anyone has any Ideas Please let me know. This picture is just a sample of how the slip was made. bannie_hen@yahoo.com   Thanks   Huh

Oh, the pocket in the front was no doubt for that small bottle of smelly stuff they used to bring ladies back to life after they fainted from bad smells {horse poo}, and from having their ribs crushed to death by those hideous undergaments. Grin Gives new meaning to the "Take my breath Away" song.
