I recently had the good fortune of being asked to reproduce a wearable WWI Era nurse’s uniform for a collector and military interpreter in Florida. He was kind enough to lend me a few of his originals to study. Here are some images of his original WWI Army issued nurse’s uniform in navy blue wool.
A very big thank you to Mr. and Mrs. H for lending me this uniform over the summer for study and replication!
My interest in historical costume began at a very early age. I knew by age 5 I wanted to be a designer. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to turn my passion into a full time business. You can find my costumes onstage in NYC, on the big screen, and in museums around the globe. View all posts by Susan
