|'Rosie the Riveter' and Crisp Fall Lammily fashions|
The two Lammily fashions shown above, 'Rosie the Riveter' and Crisp Fall, were purchased last year. With extra time on my hands, Jeanne (the name I gave my Photographer Lammily doll) was able to model both as shown in the photos below:
|Knowing she would want to continue wearing the 'Rosie the Riveter' fashion, Jeanne tried on the Crisp Fall fashion first. It includes a pink tunic, white textured stretch pants, brown faux-leather belt, and multicolored scarf. Shoes were not included. Jeanne wears Hip Hoodie's original white shoes. We both thought she looked rather nice in this fashion with the scarf tied around the neck and...|

|Jeanne shows us how the outfit looks from the back with the scarf still used as a headband.|
Below, watch a video of the brief history of the *'Rosie the Riveter' icon.
Do note that the absence of African American women in the video cannot discount the fact that, they, too, were among the labor force and armed forces during WWII, performing jobs that were typically reserved for white males as documented here and in the photograph from the National Archives below.
