This is an American Red Cross Volunteer Special Service Indoor Uniform. The yellow colored epaulets on the shoulders indicate that this uniform was worn by a member of the Staff Assistance Corps. The Red Cross insignia is sewn onto the upper left pocket of the dress and a Red Cross Volunteer patch is sewn onto the left sleeve. The uniform dress, belt, and matching hat are all made from Commando Blue (a blue-grey) cotton fabric. The dress itself was produced by “It’s a Dilly Uniform” located in Houston Texas. The label also has the number 32 printed on it presumably indicating what is assumed to be the bust size of the dress.
