Today is Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. Although Nanea’s book was not super engaging for me as an adult, the event did play an important part in her life, and marked the beginning of WWII for the US. See more here from history.com
This pattern is actually from 1944, which is a little late for Nanea’s time, but similar versions of what makes it unique (the pointy yoke) can be found in commercial patterns from both earlier and later. This one seems to only have been available in sizes for toddlers. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, because I feel AG bodies are very well suited to those styles, but if you want to make something similar for a smaller size doll, check out this post which has something similar but a little easier for Sasha and Hearts for Hearts sizes.
