Rosie the Riveter pattern pack by Folkwear.
The heroic working women of World War II inspired this factory wardrobe of camp shirt, pleated slacks, and overalls with sweetheart bib.
The shirt is styled from men’s sport shirts and is known today as a “camp” shirt. It is timeless is a crisp white cotton and lots of fun made extra-large in bright tropical prints. The pleated slacks have side pockets and a back zipper. Straight legs fall smoothly from the hips for a clean look. Add the sweetheart-shaped bodice for overalls with straps that cross in the back.
The pattern includes historical information and instructions for a knitted sweater and a crocheted snood to keep hair in place.
This is a multi-sized pattern in sizes XS to 2XL For sizings and fabric yardage see the Folkwear website.
This pattern has lots of ease, which was useful to working women who needed to do lots of moving around. Just keep that in mind when determining your size (a toile may be helpful too).
For Shirt, choose medium-weight cotton, rayon, silk, or blends. For Slacks and Overalls, choose medium to heavyweight cotton, wool, blends, corduroy, denim, velvet, or velveteen.
