This American Mutoscope & Biograph short from 1903 lasts 35 seconds, so it's clearly intended for the peep show machines. Given that it consists of a woman in her slip and three others with tape measures, this might be offered as a serious view of how women get their clothes made.
That would be a mistake, since the woman being fitted smiles at the camera and kicks a heel up pretty high for a fraction of a second. It's clearly intended for men who want to see a bit more than they usually did, but not enough to get the exhibitor closed down. It's not much, given the stuff that turned up in Paris, or even in the Viennese films -- some films intended for men's smokers have turned up in Austria.
