"The ‘Popover’ dress (1942 by Claire McCardell) was created as an all-purpose housework garment for women who joined the war effort, whether in jobs or looking after the home. Made of denim, with a large, quilted patch pocket on one hip and an attached oven mitt, it could be worn on its own or over other clothes. At only $6.95, it became a runaway success in America."
