My postman brought me two nice parcels, one was the book that I'd bought from Dorisanne Osborn, Sasha Dolls Through the Years, and what a lovely book it is too. I spent a pleasant couple of hours reading it last night and looking at the lovely photos of Sasha dolls. I learned quite a lot too, and never realised that the little Sasha toddlers weren't actually released ..... I must speak to my friend Ronny about hers, maybe she can give me more information on that as she has toddlers.
My second, bigger parcel, was my Sasha! She was sent from the UK, I got her from Shelly of Sasha Doll UK. She is a lovely blond girl and I think her name will be Millie, although that could change as I'm not 100% on it yet. I couldn't do much with her yesterday as I was working on my custom (previous post today) but now that I've finished that, I've been trying the two dresses that I made for her in anticipation of her arrival. One of them fits perfectly, and the second needs the sleeves taken up a little .... I think I must have been sewing for an orang utan!!!
Also today I gave the bottom half of her hair a conditioning treatment. Shelly had told me that her hair was dry and frizzy on the bottom but it's not too bad really, just needs some curlers in it or something. It's still quite damp at the moment so I can't really tell if the treatment worked or not, but regardless, she is a lovely doll. She has a tiny black dot near her eye which I'd planned on removing but it looks like a little beauty spot so it is staying for the time being....it makes her 'unique'!!
Anyway, without further ado, here is her photo, she is an English Trendon girl from 1971:
And here she is with her twin brother Devon:
