This is presumed to be a nurse uniform worn by "Janice E. Murray" as the dress has her name sewn into the inside by where the collar attaches. It was produced by Bruck's Quality Uniforms based out of New York and Chicago.
The dress is short sleeved and made from blue and white pinstriped cotton fabric. The uniform seems similar to those worn by nurses at the now-closed Genesee Hospital located in Rochester New York.
The apron, cap, collar, and cuffs are made from a white cotton fabric which was heavily starched. The collar which is shown in the image as up would most likely have been worn down.
