Hello again!
I've got a question about the WAC gabardine shirt - I've found this reproduction and... Is this the proper one? I'm not very sure.

Sorry to bother you.
Greetings,

Hello Marie,

This is a strange reproduction. First of all gabardine was not used as fabric for the regulation shirts of female army personnel (these were made of cotton broadcloth, tropical-worsted wool or wool shirting flannel). Secondly, the pockets on the shirt are much too large. They look more like the pockets on a men's shirt.

Thus, it might be a more authentic solution to search for a WWII army men's shirt since these were often worn by women (due to shortages in female uniform attire).

Greetings,
Katy
