WWII – Caught on Camera #3

In this pic, Lt. Marie was on-duty, retrieving some hydrogen peroxide to clean a wound. Her uniform is a one-piece wrap-around dress that tied on two sides. It’s a light-weight brown and white striped, seer-sucker dress. The cap was made of the same fabric and was worn with brown shoes and hose. Dresses were shorter than worn in the 1930s to save fabric. After the war, the dress length dropped dramatically. Many ladies inserted a contrasting or matching fabric to make the dress longer.
