Image Info

A khaki work dress or maid's uniform with a straight silhouette is indicative of mid-1920s style. Pleated along the side for movement, the dress features side seam gusset pleats. The skirt portion is plain besides one pleat on the proper left side. The dress has a detached belt, made from the same cotton material.

The uniform has four tan Bakelite buttons running from the pointed collar to the waistband. A label at the neck that reads "TRUTEX REG" above a castle insignia. Below the castle reads "CLITHEROE GUARANTEED." Trutex, a uniform brand from Clitheroe, Lancashire, United Kingdom was initially known as Clitheroe Shirtings Ltd. The name Trutex was introduced in the mid-1920s, helping to date the garment.
