I remember when these were popular! Yeah, it was early 1978, though some people started wearing them in '77. They sometimes called them underskirts. They were popular at about the same time anklet socks and bobby socks were worn with thin-strapped, high-heeled sandals. These weren't the stiff petticoats of the 1950s; these were like a slightly longer peasant skirt underneath another peasant skirt, but in white.
