During World War II, the U.S. War Production Co-Ordinating Committee commissioned J. Howard Miller to create the "We Can Do It!" poster to encourage women to take jobs that had previously been the exclusive domain of men.
Inspired by the "We Can Do It!" poster, This pattern set includes not only a work shirt and head scarf but overalls and Long Johns. The patterns fit the Tyler and friends, Alex and friends, and Gene/Madra fashion dolls. No alterations to the patterns are necessary.
The overalls can have either short or long legs. The Long Johns can have either short or long sleeves, short or long legs, or just the legs.
