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!

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

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!
