The next time we look into our closet
and choose our favorite pair
of jeans to wear,
perhaps we'd do well to remember
this fiesty young woman
in the 1800's
by designing these bloomers,
then shortening her skirt
and allowing them
to peak from beneath her hemline.
It was scandalous!
and we are "beholdin' that
she stuck with it . . .

which is the forerunner for women's
clothing as we know it today.
