At this moment in time I have three Frido single fringe girls in the styles of two Dungaree and one Single Fringe Gingham ….although two are classified as waifs due to their trimmed hair.
This darker skinned, bobbed haired girl has been with me for MANY years, probably the longest time here of all my dolls.
She just doesn’t seem to have any fringe at all and as I have mentioned before, I like to think that she was rooted when the fringe machine broke down that one time. Although her hair has been cut it is the silkiest, most beautiful of all my doll’s hairs.
I am still uncertain if she is a 1968 or 1969 model and as you can see her lips have oxidised. (Keep saying that I should have them removed but….although that’s another one of those jobs that I never seem to get around to.)
I just love this Ruthsdoll’s outfit that I treated myself to just before Christmas as a New Year gift from ‘Me to Me’…..and think that it really suits her overall colouring.
(From the looks of things below I might not have done the top neck press-stud up. Sorry.)
I was very pleased with the way these commercially made brown shoes and tan socks tone with this dress. (Oh! Hello to Terrorist! He certainly colour co-ordinates well too!)
This length of hair styles superbly into short bunches, a style that I am particularly fond of and used to wear myself ‘in the olden days when I was young’ as my overall hair was rather too thin and fine for plaiting.
I was delighted with these copies of one of Sasha’s original studio dresses by Ruth Hartley and now wish that I had purchased the pink one too…. but didn’t want to appear ‘greedy’ knowing how sort after they always are.
Her hair handles beautifully, wonderful to the touch and falls back into place nicely. I think that she could easily advertise one of those shampoos/conditioners seen on the TV.
The object of this post was basically for me to compare the doll above with the doll about to be shown below to see if I could just keep one and sell the other on….but alas the close-up photos have done the opposite and convinced me to keep both!
This is a Frido 1968 Dungaree girl again with a full centre part to allow for braids, side bunches or just hanging loose….although it isn’t anywhere near as nice a quality as the girl above.
She is wearing another smocked style OOAK dress by Ruthsdolls which I think suits her very well. The smocking is a new heart shaped style that Ruth Hartley has just bought out.
I have teamed it with commercially made brown bar shoes and ercu coloured socks.
I was rather pleased with this side view pose as it shows her very fine fringe which likes to stick out in front. I’m sure that a little ‘off the boil hot water’ would tame it but I daren’t risk it with my hands!
So I have come to accept this fringe as part of her character and am now rather fond of it. I must apologise for the clear elastic bands on show but I couldn’t find any ribbons the right colour at the time. (Note to ones-self. Ribbons need to be sorted and gathered together into a box instead of ‘here, there and everywhere in drawers, cupboards and carrier-bags!)
My one and only blonde Frido 1968 SF doll with her very trimmed fringe, but nicely ‘feathered’ hair at the sides and back.
This is a very pretty and quite minty doll (apart from her hair) and, as I am discovering, is rather photogentic when the light is right in the conservatory/studio….especially when I remember to brush those stray hairs from her face.
She is wearing a OOAK Ruthsdoll’s complete outfit which one of my NP sisters always liked to claim as her own but sadly she has, and unfortunately just this week, had to be adopted into a new home, so this dress was up for ‘grabs’ so to speak.
She falls into my ‘Middle of the range priced dolls’ and being termed a ‘waif’ due to her hair is allowed to go ‘out and about’ BUT not take even the slightest posing risks.
You can clearly see the ‘feathered’ trimming to her hair in this photo. Just perfect for me as I’m not keen on ‘loads’ of thick hair on my Sasha Dolls, especially when hoods, berets or hats are needed to be worn.
Thank you for visiting and I hope that you have enjoyed seeing and meeting three more of my Sasha Dolls that I am lucky enough to own.
Future plans here will hopefully include….the rest of my NPs photographed in the shrubbery….next Sunday’s post, my Gotz slate-eyed girls, the Gregor lads, my customised dolls, the babies, non slate-eyed Gotz, my best IMO ‘out and about’ Sasha photos, favourite Sasha/Gregor/baby outfits, my waifs and strays and regrets of dolls moved on.
