1908 Sears Catalog ad: Child's Silk Embroidered Lingerie Hat

. Tuesday, July 9, 2013

No. 18K16136. Beautiful pattern in Child's silk embroidered lingerie hat. Brim is finished with a wide ruffle of embroidery with scalloped edge in handsome design. Crown is finished on top with panel embroidered in design to match brim. Comes in white only. Price 48 cents. If by mail, postage extra, 17 cents.

I think "lingerie" must have meant something different back in 1908 than it does today. It is no longer appropriate to use "lingerie" and "child's" in the same sentence.
