Today’s Pattern Story (and Sale): In Uniform

I don't know what this dress is the uniform for, but please point me to the recruiting office (to picket it). The mitered tab-like thing at the front (partnered with the inverted pleat-entrance on the skirt) makes me think that something attaches there. Tab A, meet Slot B. But what is it? A cigarette-girl tray? Climbing harness? A front-mounted jetpack? 

Obviously, the woman in red is a commanding officer, and the woman in blue is … confused? Although, now that I think about it, a uniform that came in floral print would have me doubly-signing-up. Signing up for a double hitch? Something to that effect. 

You can't see it, because the illustration is unclear, but the ornament pinned to red-dress's shoulder is the Order of Confusing Uniform Merit, first class.

This dress is part of Sheila's current SALE, which runs Friday through Sunday night, 15% off.  The coupon code is MERRY. (Oh wait! Maybe she's a Mad-Men Era Elf! Still doesn't explain blue-floral.)
