** INSTANT DOWNLOAD ** The
Edith pattern is based on the World War 1 (WW1) Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD) field hospital uniform.
The pattern comprises a front fastening ankle length shirtwaist gown with white cuffs and an option of Mandarin or Peter Pan collar; and two designs of bibbed apron with straps.
The pattern also consists of elasticated oversleeves; a Red Cross or St John Ambulance brassard (armband) and a selection of headwear: the traditional VAD “handkerchief-style” headdress, and a “Sister Dora” nurse cap which was the basic headwear design made use of by lots of civilian medical facilities at the beginning of WW1, and which remained to be used as recently as the 1980s by London teaching hospitals.
The collars and apron styles are interchangeable.
The Edith pattern for a WW1 volunteer nurse uniform is deliberately generic to allow you to make a nursing uniform that is representative of your very own country’s role in the War.
More information about WW1 VADs is included with this pattern in addition to links to sites to find out more and family tree research purposes.
You will certainly require one backyard of white material and half a backyard of gray or blue fabric for the dress, plus Anti Snag Velcro or snaps for the gown closure, fusible interfacing, four small (6-8mm) buttons, snaps for the apron and 3/4 backyard of 1/4″ (6mm) elastic for the oversleeves.
