St. Joseph's Girls Convent school uniform

What we know about this image :

Convent uniform donated to Hartlepool Museum by ex-pupil Pat Wormald (nee Daley) who attended the school 1965-70. Her Parents bought the uniform at Grieveson's in York Road. The winter uniform at the time was a brown pinafore-type dress, a cream blouse, a tie and a brown cardigan. In summer, dresses were either bought or home-made using the same distinctive material which was mustard and brown patterned. The dresses had a white collar.

In the 6th form, girls could wear a skirt rather than the pinafore dress. All girls had to wear a brown bowler-type hat. In addition to the brown uniform, girls had to have a white triangular mantilla trimmed with lace which was part of the uniform when attending church.
