Gabrielle takes a bow!

Today Gabrielle got the chance of some modelling and some camera time.  I made this outfit for her last year but she never got to wear the shorts as one of my other Sashas stole them from her!!!!  But now she has them back and wanted to model for you!

Gabrielle is my Sasha Pink Dress, I think from 1979, she was obviously made before the Sashas became bigger because she is about the same size as my other older girls.  She has had her eyes repainted by Shelly, freckles and blush added by me and is wearing a lambswool wig.

    1. Thanks very much Dee, I do love this wig on her too, and it was only going to be temporary, but I think it's so 'her' that she'll be keeping it!

  5. She is very pretty, Shelly did a great job with her eyes and they match the wig beautifully. Lovely outfit too (all set off nicely by the sunshine).

  6. What a beautiful girl. Your addition of freckles and a little blush make her look like a happy little holiday-maker. All she needs now is a swim suit, towel and beach ball! Love her clothes - red is her colour.

    1. Thanks so much Jenni, I'm glad you like her. She has gone through a lot of changes and is so different from when I got her. I remember thinking that I'd made a dreadful mistake when I opened the box as her eyes were very flat. Shelly certainly rectified that for me, and the rest has helped her to develop her own personality. I've very happy with her now!

  7. Lovely photos Sharon. It's hard to get shots looking into the face when Sashas stand on the ground, as in the last one - I have my DH crawling round the patio to get those pics! He only grumbles a little bit LOL
    Not surprised Gabrielle had to wait in line to wear those shorts, they're such a lovely pattern.

    1. Thanks very much Rosie! I know what you mean about getting the angle right and especially low down ones. Since losing weight I don't have trouble getting down on the ground but I forget to put the dogs inside and so they tend to think it's one big game and I must be lying on the ground for their benefit...they jump on my head, my back and the backs of my legs!!! LOL
      Thanks also on the shorts, I really like this fabric, I have no idea what type it is though!
