Help Needed: Who Wears it Best?

My collection now includes Susan and Linda, friends to Molly and Emily. Having four 1940s girls has made me kick up my 1940s clothes production, which has been tons of fun…however, I made this outfit for one of the four (not saying who because I want unbiased opinions!) and now I am not sure if it looks…

Rebecca in Central Park

Rebecca visited Central Park today! Unfortunately, not the same Central Park that she would have visited in New York in 1914, but still a Central Park all the same.
