    Those are early uniforms for the female labor service, at the time known as the Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst.

    Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst, is correct as what HPL2008 says. It is the precursor for the RADwJ
    (Reichsarbeitsdienst weibliche Jugend).
    Photo is possibly about 1934/1935. The diamond upon the upper left arm is their symbol.
    The black armband is for mourning, but I cannot read any letter for the worn cuffband. It is said it could be
    for the district (Bezirk), but about that I have not ever seen any evidence or specific regulation!

    Hello yarmouth: is it possible you enlarge the cuffband from the standing girl,
    second right (see enclosed image), as best as possible. Maybe I can identify!

    I just sent you the highest resolution image I can make on my scanner(600)to your email address you sent me. By the naked eye and holding the photo the image looks a little out of focus. Good luck!

    Would they be in mourning for a fellow worker?

    Could be; but that's impossible to tell. Another good possibility is that the mourning bands are worn because of the period of national mourning upon the death of Reichspräsident von Hindenburg in August 1934.
