Rosie the Riveter and Winry Rockbell by joaocouto Rosie the Riveter and Winry Rockbell by joaocouto
I always though that Winry could be a reference to Rosie the Riveter, a cultural icon of the United States which represents the women who worked in factories during World War II, so i made this.

R.I.P to Mary Keefe the model they used for Rosie, who passed away recently at 92 years of age.

the character lives in an area where it's usually very hot, so it's just normal to see her like that. But in the manga you only see her one time wearing that tube top and sometimes she even wears coveralls too.

XD Plus you have to take into account that they were living in a parallel universe/Earth so fashion trends would be a little different.

I think the biggest confirmation of the reference is that Winry's name is Winry Rockbell, while Rosie the Riveter's creator is Norman Rockwell.

Yes, but that's actually not Rosie the Riveter, it's the "We Can Do It!" poster that is now always mistaken for it:

Rosie the Riveter is a fictional character, and this poster is of that fictional character. There's no specific look for her, but this is her. There's no mistake involved, and the Wikipedia page even agrees with that idea

"Rosie the Riveter is a fictional character, and this poster is of that fictional character."

No, it isn't.  Rosie the 
Riveter is here:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosie_th…

The "We Can Do It" poster was NOT a depiction of Rosie the Riveter.  You might as well claim that Felix the Cat was Tom of Tom & Jerry, since they're both cartoon cats.
