Cotton combinations

About this object

Like trousers, combinations were referred to as a ‘pair’ although they were a single garment. They were literally a combination of the camisole and the drawers, with a buttoned flap at the back to allow the wearer to use the lavatory without taking them off. Emily Tinne had several pairs, including fine machine-knitted examples from the 1930s.
