Say hello to Gwen, she loves to dress up in her welsh traditional costume. She just loves all things Wales, and especially loves the national flower, the daffodil! Gwen is an amigurumi doll wearing a petticoat, gown, boots, apron, shawl, cap and hat. The outfit is similar to other historical costumes and could be adapted to make a range of historical outfits.

The body of this pattern is worked as one piece from the toes to the shoulders, so no need for too much tedious hand sewing! Gwen would make an excellent gift for anyone who comes from wales or identifies as welsh.

Both US and UK crochet notation is included, choose the appropriate download after purchase.
