My friend Mary is a published author here in the UK and I always like to celebrate the publication day oh her new novels by doing something with one of my dolls to celebrate. When she wrote her novel based on the Battle of the Somme, I looked everywhere for a WW1 nurses doll pattern. To my delight I found Gennie's. I was thrilled with the result my doll looked just like the nurse on the front cover. Mary and her publishers were delighted. My photo of my doll was tweeted by the publisher. My church later had my doll in the uniform in their Battle of the Somme display too. I can't thank you enough Gennie.
Great pattern. Clear instructions. Very easy to work with. End result very satisfying.
I tested this pattern for Genine, and it turned out so cute. I have one of my dolls wearing it now. It was not too difficult even with the many pieces, and the end result was great. All of the Genniewren patterns are so well written, and easy to follow.
Absolutely thrilled with the pattern. My granddUghter made for her humanities assignment an d received nothing but praise for the finished produce. Loved the research also supplied with the pattern
