I know it is a completed auction, but can anybody cast light on what era/genre this dress may be? Curiosity coupled with ignorance... :oops: :lol:

Very nice, could be anything from 1920s onwards. That fastening appears on some of the Great War nursing dresses.

Bloody cheap! Wish I'd seen that!

Trying to work out what colour it is! Currently decided on a greyish/blueish/charcoalish hue... :D

And I expected the thread to be about a bloke considering wearing ladies outifts... :lol:

Is that really a nurse's dress?
Looks like something a maid might wear, I suppose, so it could be... Has that 'working and doing stuff' look to it.

Maid?? Nah. Deffo not enough frills.
(Erm... So I've heard...)
(Besides, a maid's uniform would have worn through on the knees. Allegedly.)

My instinct says its nursing uniform, probably 1920's as Kate said because its too short for any earlier. Unless she was a very short nurse!
