Rosie the Riveter was the fictional character pictured in posters to recruit women into the work force during World War II. Women started working in large numbers building airplance, tanks, warships, artillery and ammunition. Factory work demanded slacks or overalls and for the first time in history slacks became an essential part of a woman's wardrobe.

Included in this pattern (Folkwear 240) is a shirt, overalls, and slacks to sew, along with patterns for a sweater to knit and a snood to crochet. Perfect for historical reenactments, costume parties, and everyday wear.

Suggested fabrics: Shirt: Medium-weight cotton and blends; rayon and silks. Slacks and Overalls: Bottom-weight cotton, wool, blends, corduroy, denim, velvet and velveteen.

Misses size 6-20.??

Since the 1970s, Folkwear patterns have been used by theatre and dance costumers, historic reenactors, art-to-wear-aficionados, and anyone who enjoys dressing up. Folkwear patterns are based on vintage fashions and traditional ethnic garments for an authentic look. But with a fresh eye and creative touch, these timeless styles can become exciting and trend-setting wearable art today.
