Combining WWII simplicity with an utterly feminine silhouette, Wintercheck Factory's recent endeavor into fashion is a sexy Rosie The Riveter-esque collection all made in Brooklyn.

Sourcing styles straight from her grandma's closet in Dallas, Wintercheck founder Kristen Wentrcek designed a six-piece strong collection with each item as a limited run. With an average of about 275 pieces for each style, Wentrcek tells CH "It's all based on the fabric roll sizes so once the manufacturer finishes cutting, that's it for our production in that color. Should a style sell really well, we may have it remade but never in that same color."

Imported Japanese fabrics are prewashed for ultimate softness, and boast a keen eye for details. Standouts include the insanely soft, lined Eunice Dress (named after her grandmother), the striped Sarah Skirt (guaranteed to show a little leg without flashing people on the street) and the Anna Romper Swimsuit, which features a built-in bra, adjustable straps and a hidden zippered pocket.
