This is a digital, print at home PDF sewing pattern for a 1940s Nurses' Pinafore and canteen apron. It has been adapted from an original 1943 sewing pattern that was created by Hollywood Patterns on collaboration with the Red Cross.

Version 1 is a regulation pinafore apron with one or two pockets, bib front, suspender straps and a back button closure. Version 2 is a full coverage “canteen apron” with sleeves, button back closure, and the same pocket options. Both are intended to be worn over a dress or standard nurses’ uniform.
