Another job you may not want to do, sewing wing coverings

 Women sewing fabric to be used to cover airplane wings. Cotton or linen was cut and sewed to shape before being stretched over the wooden wing ribs, then doped (painted with lacquer) to tighten and smoothen the surface and to make it weathertight.

still in production...
