Recently, I became interested in welding, and needed clothing that would give me full protection from flying sparks. So I put down the welding torch and picked up a sketch pad. The coveralls I designed are much like the outfits many 1940s Rosies wore while welding and putting rivets in airplanes. But now, I've added lots of roomy pockets and included knee pockets for removable knee pads.
Rosies are made from comfortable cotton and designed with a full fit for easy movement. Slip your Rosies on over your regular clothes and in seconds, you'll be ready for gardening, painting, cleaning, or my favorite . . . welding". Sharon Moore
During World War II, as more and more men were sent to fight overseas, a labor shortage prompted many American women to go to work in U.S. factories, building war planes and battleships. These women were called "Rosies," after the famed Rosie The Riveter, first introduced in a wartime recruitment poster. By 1944, over half the workers in U.S. factories were women.
Rosie The Riveter is a symbol of dedicated and courageous women everywhere. Today's women are just as passionate about creating a better world. Just like Rosie, they knock stuff down and build stuff up. That's why we've created Rosies, coveralls for women.
