…..The SECOND set of the girl’s Summer dresses. It was a difficult photo shoot as the bright sun had decided to play hide and seek with me and my camera, popping in and out of the clouds ‘at the rate of knots’ …. BUT it had to be done today as have a busy next few days before hopefully posting these my blog on Sunday.
A Frido minty FCP 1969 girl in an attrative and fresh looking vintage-sasha dress set and JJ bar shoes.
This is a sweet looking little tot though who, in my opinion, slightly lacks the expressions of my other two very similar blonde Gingham dolls but remains here on account of her being my one and only full centre part non NP girl.
She also looks the part of what is perceived as a typical little English old fashioned child with her overall fair colouring, blonde hair in bunches and blue eyes.
Most of you must now know my dolls as well as I do so the photos here today are, as well as displaying the last of their Summer dresses, showing some of their varying poses in front of the camera.
These dolls can be so photogenic ….if the light allows.
For any new comers to the blog this is a Trendon 1970 Gregor customised by Shelly whom she named Belle.
She is wearing a very early short Ruthsdoll’s dress and JJ open-toed sandles which were made and then given to me as a gift by Jean Jenson.
Her wig is a now discontinued Global wig, style cossette, which with her eye painting, I think gives her a Mabel Lucy Attwell appearance.
A 1969 Gotz No-Navel girl seen here in a N.Gould. shorts, top and sun hat outfit with JJ sandals.
Until the other day I thought that she had stopped making Sasha outfits on account of the birth of a baby girl several years ago now but a friend told me that she is now back again designing and making for Sasha. so will hopefully be watching out for some more of her designs.
I think that she has somewhat of a little urchin look about her.
Riplee, a Trendon wide faced 1970ish doll customised by Shelly and wearing a Trendon Velvet’s wig.
Her dress is a OOAK Ruthsdoll’s dress that came on a doll that I had purchased. Have added JJ sandals.
I think that she is quite a photogenic little soul so have included a fair number of photos of her.
My 1968 Frido Fringe Dungaree girl in a pretty, filmsy styled party dress by smpg that I bought second hand off Sashadolluk with JJ peach leather sandals on her feet.
(There is a matching headband but haven’t used it here with her hair already being in plaits.)
These last photos of Miss Lippy are especially for Simply-Sasha. She is wearing a very attractive vintage-sasha smock and shorts set although bought with another doll in mind and as always, JJ sandals.
Miss Lippy sends her love and says a special ‘Get that knee better asap!’
Below she is wearing a Liberty print vintage Sasha outfit that has actually already been seen (but not on her) in an earlier post and JJ sandals.
I’m thinking that these above are the LAST of their Summer Dresses (unless I discover a few more in their clothes boxes later on.) I hope that you have enjoyed seeing these lovely outfits designed and made by some of our very talented seamstresses. (Thinking that it will be the Gregor lads in their Summer Dollydoodles hoodies, T shirts and shorts up next since the girls have rather ‘hogged’ all the posts of late.)
