What type of uniform are you describing? There was a women's Mess Dress uniform that I believe was black including a jacket and a long black skirt. Is this what you are talking about?

Is there a contract label you could describe for us?

It sounds like the commissioned Army blues.

 

What kind of buttons are on it?

My mother was in the WAAC / WAC during WW2. When she was discharged and began looking for a job, she didn't have a decent civilian outfit to wear to job interviews. So, to save money, she dyed one of her Class A uniforms black so it looked a little less military. She wore it with a white or pastel blouse under the jacket. She said that both men and women did this immediately after the war. The uniform is now in the WAC Museum at Fort Des Moines, Iowa.
