After some trial and errors I finally finished my DRK DAK uniform. I worked only with two pictures and some informations from the red cross book.

Its made of mercerized 100% cotton fabric (color tan) and cotton tread. I then dyed the uniform in the washing-machine and out came a rather authentic looking color!

I made a second uniform made of a thicker 100% cotton fabric and dyed it with the same color .... out came a color not so good looking as the first one. I may use it for reenacting in colder temperatures.

The red cross brooch, wounded award and the Rittberghaus emblem are originals.
The Afrikakorps and Eiserne Kreuz are repros.
