The doll was made from cotton, with a coat I am very pleased with made of felt. The look is demure but approachable which I think lends itself to the character of Chummy.
Call the Midwife is a TV series based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth set in east London in the 1950s, about a group of young midwives helping the women of a deprived area of East London. The characters are hard-working and brave.
The character of Chummy,Camilla Cholmeley-Browne, is my favourite. She is the daughter of a well-off family who has found her way into nursing and midwifery. She is good-humoured and monumentally kind and a real role model. She is played to perfection by talented actress and comedian Miranda Hart.
I thought a doll based on such a wonderful role-model made perfect sense.
