[quote quote=8623]I thought women mostly had pockets. There was usually an opening in the side of the outer skirt (they sometimes wore several skirts) a pouch/purse was attached to the belt and they slipped it inside the opening of the outer skirt. Perhaps it depended on the lady as to what she wold carry since the pouch/purse was pretty good size. Maybe some money, a ribbon, a keepsake of some kind, jewelry, maybe key/s.
WE use “pockets”. Actually they attached to long bands that tie around the waist.
