World War 1 American Uniform. The American uniform was typically made of wool, with a belted jacket with pockets on the front, trousers that were baggy and wide at the top, and skinny at the bottom. They were typically worn with boots.
Due to the lack of air conditioning during World War II, summer working uniforms for WAVES, SPARS and Women Marines were made from cotton seersucker, a cool and comfortable fabric. This example is missing its buttons. Gift of Donna Kriner Cash, The National WWII Museum Inc., 2001.014.
