American Red Cross Nurse’s Uniform, 1917-18 Cotton dress and apron. The Red Cross issued guidelines for uniforms, but each volunteer was responsible for providing her own. Inevitably, variations resulted. This example has a collar and cuffs of the same fabric as the dress, instead of prescribed white ones.
