This is presumed to be a nurse uniform worn by "Elizabeth A. Hughes" as the dress, apron, and collar all bear her name.
The dress is a dark denim blue fabric with three white stripes sewn on the left arm and two starched tabards that hang from the shoulders to the waist. A tag with the name "Elizabeth A. Hughes" is stitched below the collar line on the inside of the dress.
The apron is made up white starched fabric and is in two parts. The top piece is heavily starched and sits under the collar. While the bottom piece covers the area below the wearer's waist and has a flap on the inside which the top piece sits. The collar is also starched white fabric and buttons to the dress.
