I believe Soldier of Fortune do the cord trousers but not cheap. I knitted my own jumper, you just need some dark green wool and a basic stocking stitch pattern (like a school jumper for instance). If you don't want to spend much why not see if you can find a pair of khaki dungarees on e-bay, or even a pair of jodphurs. WLA had a uniform, but they didn't always wear all of it when they were working. Work clothes (old dungarees or overalls, old trousers etc.) were worn frequently. You don't need a hat either just use a head scarf. If a hat is required Appletreelane do them. I think they do jumpers and other bits of uniform as well. I don't know what they're like. I've heard mixed reviews. Some people rave over them others say stay away. Have a look on eBay as a starter, but see SofF also and get an idea of prices.

If you're on Facebook - look up a group called 'Land Girls At Large' - a lovely bunch who would also be able to give excellent advice!
