this picture is of the designer herself. she is said to be the first real american designer. basically, she revolutionized sportswear and comfort as we know it, but she did it with style…unlike what it’s devolved to become.

this is one of her early designs, the denim popover dress. it had an attached oven mitt and extra large pocket. i’ve been thinking about extra large pockets lately, since i’m designing a raincoat for myself. these are nice.

she licensed her name a lot. it was on sewing patterns, etc. these are paper dolls. i own a set. they’re so cute! i think that maybe i should frame them?
