Bailey and the Russian Dolls!

I finished an outfit today and Bailey is modelling it for you.....I was inspired by these lovely wooden Russian matryoshka nesting dolls that I bought some years ago whilst on holiday.  I'd love to have them displayed like this but am always worried that the smallest one will become lost as she is only about 1cm tall, so I keep them 'nested'!!  I like that they are looking upwards, maybe it is because they are so small!  Notice their little musical instruments.



The outfit consists of a pinafore dress made from thick white cotton, all topstitched, half lined and closes with snaps in the back.  The Russian matryoshka doll has been appliqued to the front of the pinafore and I've picked out some of the details using tiny blue and white seed beads.  The long sleeved, high necked top is made from knit fabric in two shades of pink and she has matching long stockings that can be worn pulled up over the knees or pushed down for a more casual look!  The shoes are not included in the outfit.









If you are interested in purchasing this outfit for your Sasha, please contact me at dambuster0662@gmail.com - Outfit has now sold, thank you!

Thank you!!

  3. That's a seriously adorable outfit...you are always tempting me with your Sashas! LOL

    I love the Russian Matryoshka dolls, and the pretty beading on the one on her pinafore is the perfect touch. :)

    1. Awww thanks so much Lynn, I'm glad you like it!
      I find sewing for Sasha is a lot of fun because unlike with an MSD of a similar height, I can still make the young child like outfits that I enjoy sewing, and yet they're a great size to sew for.
      I can see a Sasha in your future perhaps!!!!!

      I will have to look into having a page, I've never thought of doing it like that before, but yes, certainly saves on those awful ebay fees!

  6. So sweet on Bailey, and you've made it completely original with the beading - I'm not surprised it's sold so quickly. The overknee socks are a perfect touch and sooo cute when they get saggy. Just hope Bailey's still got the pink knickers on!
