Rosie the Riveter “We Can Do It!” Costume: DIY Guide
Rosie the Riveter became a symbol of female empowerment and the feminist movement after its use as a poster to recruit women to shipyards and factories during WWII. She represents the thousands of women in America who helped built important supplies for the war effort.
Rosie the Riveter wears a blue jean jumpsuit cuffed at the shin with red socks and black leather boots. A red headscarf with white spots is an essential part of her look. No Rosie the Riveter costume would be complete without a classic-style lunchbox. To learn how to make your own DIY Rosie the Riveter costume check out the instructions below.
