I cannot tell you how many times I got called Rosie the Riveter today. I am missing the toned arms though.
This outfit actually pulled together pretty well, I had Clark to match the boots and a black 50s jacket with a leopard collar I added on. I forget jewelry due to rushing out the door, so maybe next time a rhinestone brooch, there needs to be some sparkle. It was so comfortable all day, just what I needed, and having all of these pockets is like being a purse. I remember reading in one of the american girl books that the WASP ladies had notepads built into the thigh of the suit for jotting down notes, which is a terrific concept. Especially for people like me who have to write everything down otherwise it gets forgotten.
P.S. My 1930s sewing pattern cam in the mail and its so cute! Now I just need the materials and I can get started.
