Drawers OVER Chemise 1874.
I found these images On-Line at a French site after a hint of their existence on a blog about 1800s illustration. The book was a series of essays of which this group was a commentary on current fashions.
The first one is a: "Stages of Dress" showing the drawers OVER the chemise and corset with a bustle next.
I've edited the pages with PHOTO SHOP to clarify the images and credit the book and page number on which they can found. These two below shows no chemise bottom over the drawers and show fashions from 10 years earlier in the 1860s.
