Hi there,
Just a quick question -- on the original "Dress Blue" ANC uniform, was the blue skirt buttoned at the waist? Or hook-eye at the waist? The reason that I ask is because I have a version of both. One is button closure, and the other is hook-eye. I was wondering which one, or both, was correct? I believe both of them to be original because they both have the correct fabric, color, and cut. Thanks so much for your help!
Best Regards,
Nick

Hi Nick,

A button closure is more common, but hook-eye closure was also possible. Officer clothing could vary in such little details, e.g. if the nurse had her uniform custom tailored, she could request such differences depending on her personal preference.

Greetings,
Katy
