Use Your Maid's Old Uniform

In 1943 a lot of the sewing books focused on renovating and remaking, using what you already had to make what you needed. For this School Girl's dress it is suggested that you use a flowered cotton house dress and from a plain blue cotton "that was once a part of a maid's uniform."
If you didn't happen to have an old maid's uniform laying around they also say you could check your scrapbag. "Odd scraps of colorful fabric are combined with great success."
