1970’s Brownie Uniform

Brownie Uniform made between 1973-1985. This uniform was worn by Brownie Girl Scouts – girls in first through third grade.

There are 5 pieces that could be mixed and matched: a blouse or orange turtle neck, a jumper, pants and shorts. The jumper and blouse are shown here along with the official orange tie and Brownie pin. The official hat was a brown felt beanie with an orange brownie symbol embroidered on the front.

This uniform is on loan from the Marie Ogdahl collection.

In honor of the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting, a collection of “Girl Scout Uniforms Through the Years” is on exhibit at the Museum now through March.

    Very cool! I wore that uniform. But I’m pretty sure we didn’t wear those WWI era boots with it… we’re not quite *that* old… πŸ˜‰

    I have a vintage Girl Scout and a Brownie uniform ( circa 1950’s ) that I would like to find a home for. If any one is interested in them please let me know.

    We also had orange sock garters in this time period. They are missing.
