Object Name Uniform
Catalog Number 2013.032.001
Collection American Red Cross of Southeast Tennessee
Description American Red Cross pale blue and white pinstriped dress with a smock neckline, 6 buttons in the back and double squared pockets (size 6). There is a square "Red Cross Volunteer" patch on the front which seems to be newer than the dress. Smaller Red Cross organizations usually recycled their uniforms which explains why the newer patch is attached to the dated dress.

Possibly a nurses aid uniform circa 1941-1942. This dress was nicknamed the "WWII Holiday" uniform because it was released during the months of November/December. The blouse is missing from the uniform. Brew-Schneider was the manufacturing company (65% polyester and 35% cotton).
Date 1941-1942
Dimensions W-26.5 L-40 inches
Dimension Details Width is measured at the bottom of the dress.
