A busy Sew and Sew....

I've spent the last few days sewing!   I've finished four outfits for my girls and having already shared photos of Gabrielle wearing hers, I would now like to show the other girls in theirs.  Also I finally got around to a group shot of my current Sasha family!  And a few 'special' photos of Devlin, my handsome blond boy, with his little dog! 

Hope you enjoy them!

Firstly here is my wide faced Brunette (1971), she is still unnamed, for the life of me I can't find a name that suits her!  Any suggestions carefully considered!!  Anyway, Little Miss No Name's outfit is made from an embroidered cotton pique in white with pink flowers.  I only had a small piece as it was given to me by my friend, so I made a short dress then made some pale pink short leggings to spare this little lady's blushes!




Next is Jojo, my mid 70s girl.  Her outfit is an 'angel' top made with knit fabric in mauve flowers and striped leggings to match.  Both items are made using girls leggings that I got in the sales! You will see that although her fringe is still crazily uneven, it is much flatter now!



  

And little Maggie, my puddle eyes girl from 73/74 is wearing a sleeveless A line dress with false placket front in contrast gingham fabric.  Are those buttons too big?  I used them because I felt they matched the big flowers on the fabric, but am thinking maybe smaller buttons would look better.




No new outfit for Ellory, my redhead 'waif', but she got a new Turtle necklace to go with her outfit that I made a few weeks ago.


Ahh, here is young Devlin with 'his' dog!  These photos were really taken for Ronny, who's dog Cooper finds Kara, my 5 year old tiny Chihuahua, fascinating when he sees her on Ronny's computer screen!!  They're not great photos because Kara wasn't over impressed with this big boy who just wanted to fall on top of her!!





And finally, here is a photo of my full Sasha/Gregor family!  It's not great and a bit rushed as it was hard to get them all to look at the camera at the same time!!!

    2. Thanks so much Ronny, and Cooper too of course! I know the photos aren't great because obviously Kara was not comfortable on the patio table as you can see from her ears being back like that, so I only kept her on there for a matter of seconds whilst I quickly snapped these! Poor baby!!
      I really do have the Sasha madness, I don't know how it happened!! I was only going to get the two at first, a boy and a girl, then it was just three....and now I have 9! Yes, 9!!! And I hate uneven numbers, don't you?!! ;-)
      As for the names, thank you also for those....I am looking at Elise, that is a nice one. In fact they are all nice. I find naming some dolls so hard whilst others almost name themselves!!

    1. Thanks so much Dee! Glad you enjoyed them, and no, Kara was not in the least impressed, especially when he fell forward and landed next to her....I think the look she gave him would have killed off a lesser Gregor!! ;)
      Thanks also on the outfits...and yes, don't remind me...I said three!!!! (Maybe I meant 33, or seeing as I have 9 now, maybe I meant 3 + 3 + 3????) LOL

  3. Missy looks gorgeous in that embroidered cotton pique in white with pink flowers top & shorts, it really suits her. Jojo is the 'trendy girl' and looks like she is ready for anything. Pretty little Maggie is wearing a fabulous dress, I just love the flowers, style and bright colours! Have to love the photo of Devlin with Kara - she really is the right size for him, although she doesn't look over impressed, you are right. He looks the proud boy with his dog though.

    Just love your line up! :-)

  4. All the outfits are gorgeous and perfect. I really love the big buttons, they set the whole outfit off. They look balanced with the large floral print.
    Aww... Kara and Devlin made me smile. He's besotted with her. She? Not impressed! LOL
    You have a lovely Sasha family.

    1. Thanks so much Valli, I'm glad you like them! I am leaving those buttons on, I kept looking at them and wondering if they were too big, but I think they seem to suit the fabric well! So they'll stay!

  5. Great pictures! I love little Devlin with Kara. :D

    As for little miss no name, she reminds me a bit of the youngest orphan in the 1982 movie "Annie", who was named "Molly." I was re-watching the movie with a small relative on the weekend, and that's the name that immediately popped into my head when I saw your doll! LOL

    1. Thanks very much Randomfish! Kara is getting a big head with all the praise and attention!!
      Well I do like the name Molly, but I already have Maggie and Millie and had even come up with some M names myself, so I was thinking of trying another letter! The problem is, which letter!!! I will keep Molly in mind though, thank you for that!

  6. Funnily enough the name I thought of immediately also begins with an 'M'. It is Madeleine...

    1. THanks Penny! Funnily enough, I thought of Magdalena, which is my friends name but then as I wrote above, I was thinking of getting away from the letter M as I already have two girls with M names!!!

  7. Adore all your clothing styles. Simple but oh so smart and trendy and just perfect for their life out there in the Spainish sun!
    Noticing how their numbers are slowly but surely creeping up and up and..just like it's happened to us all!
    Super final line up.

    1. LOL You got me spot on with the numbers creeping up Kendal!! Today we are at 9! How on earth did that happen??? Whilst I sell of my BJDs, and praise myself for getting their numbers down, so I increase the Sasha family with the money from the sales! Oops! Not quite what I had in mind when I said I was going to 'downsize' my dolly collection.
      Glad you like the outfits, thanks for your nice comments on them! I am really enjoying sewing for them, they have a lot of clothes now and I still have ideas for more!!!
