Today I got the four Sashas that I have with me, ready for Spring, and decided it was time they had some new photos taken. I know that Bailey had some photos taken on Sunday but since then she has got a new wig. Because Toddler Teddy is here with me too, he likes to have his photo taken with his sisters....well maybe a bit of 'gentle persuasion' of an ice cream afterwards, did help a little! ;)
Firstly we have Nuria, my 1968 Ballet girl, she is wearing a dress that I made just from measurements, without a pattern, approx three and a half years ago, in anticipation of my first Sasha arriving. Whilst the doll in question, Millie, was en transit from the UK, I panicked thinking "oh my goodness, she'll have nothing to wear!" So I quickly got measurements from someone and made this simple summer dress from some shirting fabric I had, then tea dyed the lace for the bottom. The dress is a little long as I prefer my dresses nice and short, and the bodice isn't a perfect fit, but Nuria suits the colours so well with her red hair, that she wanted to wear it. Who am I to turn her down! Her socks are by me and her lovely brown leather shoes are by the late great Jean Jensen.
Next we have Wren, my Kilt girl from 1968/9. She is wearing a dress I made last year I think it was, the colour goes so well with her eyes, the perfect matching blue! Although you can't see her shoes and socks in this photo, below in the group photos you will see she is wearing lovely pale blue shoes, again by Jean Jensen and white socks by me. (Please excuse her dodgy fringe!)
Next we have Bailey, my once Brunette Sasha from 1971. Yesterday she received this new Pintucks wig from Brenda Walton in the UK, and after I washed and conditioned it we put it into two pigtails (inspired by Sarah Williams) and added some strips of blue and white Paisley fabric. Her outfit is made by me and her navy blue shoes are again by Jean Jensen.
Now we have another little sweetie, Skye. Skye would be described as a 'waif' as I cut the length of her hair into this bob as the ends were very dry. She is from 1969. She's wearing an aqua check dress that I made, along with her socks, and this time, her lovely mustard yellow shoes are from Marti Sanders Murphy in the US. They were a very kind Christmas gift to me from a dear Sasha friend :)
The lineup wouldn't be complete without my one and only Toddler, Theodore or Teddy as he is known to his friends! Teddy is a Gotz Erik and is well loved by myself and the rest of my Sasha/Gregor family. He's wearing an outfit I made for him, and Gotz 'suede' sneakers.
Finally some photos of them all together.
Thank you for stopping by my blog, I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
