My guess would be WW1 telegram girls or post ladies.

Clippies WW1 is my guess.

I just put clippies 1916 into Google some interesting uniforms for different areas, some very like these.

If you search on Google for WW1 postwoman you will see very similar uniforms  - especially the hats and satchels.
