The Spacesuit: How a Seamstress Helped Put Man on the Moon

Getting a man on the moon didn't just take scientists: it took seamstresses! There is a competition to make the spacesuit for the first moon landing. Eleanor “Ellie” Foraker is asked to lead a team of other talented seamstresses at ILC Dover, a clothing company, to compete for the chance to make them. No one believes they can win, but they are determined to try.

The list of requirements for a space suit is long and complex: heat resistant, comfortable, light, and precise to within 1/64th of an inch. But Ellie's team proves their mettle, making a key contribution to the space race. This picture book based on the incredible true story behind the spacesuit that astronauts wore on the first moon walk and the team of women who sewed it together is a reminder that all trades and skills need to work together to achieve greatness.
