I suppose its owner loved it so much than when fashion changed with the flapper she decided to make her superb jupon into a French chemise. The straps , being made of2 very fine french lace trims each need some simple stitches in the middle, I can also give you a length of victorian/ art deco suitable material to replace them. 2 little holes in all of that lace after more than 120 years in existence is pretty good. No holes in fabric I could see.
