Looking for "Peggy Janes," a type of clothing

Asked June 9, 2014, 12:34 PM EDT

Hello--I was reading a book published in 1922. The young heroine found a trunk full of clothes, including three pairs of Peggy Janes (which would have made her Aunt Edie shriek with laughter). I cannot find any references to an article of clothing called a Peggy Jane. Can anyone help? Thank you very much.
