Over Summer 2011, I completed and internship with the VCU's School of Nursing at the MCV campus. My task was to recreate a nurse's uniform from the early 1930s using yearbooks, photos, and an actual uniform from the St. Philip's hospital (the Black hospital) as my references. I also had to write a research paper on nurse's uniforms, interview the archivist I worked under, and produce a muslin and patterns of the design. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to take photos of the complete uniform, but below I have a slideshow of process pictures, showing my documentation of the real uniform, as well as one of the two muslins I constructed. A link to the PDF of the pattern will also be included below.
