    There is a guy who makes a whole bunch of nurses uniform items - solomon adler. Do a google search. I think he has a UK agent. They are based in Poland or Czech I think.

    Here is the link for Solomon Adler's british agent / seller.

    Hope this helps. Very good, and more importantly accurate WW2 women's uniforms are harder to find than you think!

    Another woman who makes them to order, is Della Rebours in Harrogate, her quality is apparently second to none. She makes period dresses for women from many history periods and is in great demand. Her name is in the phone book.

    Good luck! You just never know. Original stuff can be out there, but some of the collectors take a lot of persuading to part with stuff. Its like watching an episode of "american pickers".

    best wishes
