The summer uniform was created for wear in the summer months. While not authorized for wear in the ETO as a complete uniform, articles of the uniform (such as the cotton shirt) were authorized for wear. WACs who accepted overseas assignment in Europe turned in their summer uniforms and exchanged them for their field uniforms.
