A little bit of Sasha sewing.....

Today for the first time in a couple of weeks, I actually did some sewing for my Sasha. My blond Sasha from 1971, Millie, now has a new dress.  I used a pattern I just bought from the seller 'grandmas patterns' on Ebay.  I did make the collar to go with it but I actually preferred it without.  (I don't know why, but I think Sasha girls seem to suit quite plain styles very well!)
Millie is still wearing her yellow socks as firstly we are still at the coast and she doesn't have any other socks with her, and secondly because, of all the fabric I have with me, I don't have any knit fabric in a colour such a turquoise or even pale blue....so it's yellow for now!  Actually, I quite like the yellow with the turquoise check of the dress.  The first two photos were taken on my phone, and the other three were taken in bright sunlight and just don't show the true colours of the fabric.  I will take more once I go home and make her some new socks to go with it!!
