First (Annual?) Nurse Doll Challenge

In August 2018, my friend and coworker Danielle Patterson proposed a challenge: use the same doll pattern to create dolls dressed in historic nursing uniforms from eras of our choosing. Danielle suggested using my "Verity" pattern. This doll is made completely of cloth, and stands about 22 inches tall.

After doing some research, I started my doll in February. I was drawn to the Red Cross uniforms worn during World War 1. Turns out Danielle chose that era as well.

After finally finishing my doll this week, we revealed them at work.

We've already decided to challenge ourselves again, though we haven't discussed the details. 

Here's Danielle's doll:

Here's mine:
