This year I’m trying to cut down on the number of photographs for each doll or outfit from the previous four to two or three so that there won’t be so much repetition for you to have to trawl through.
First we have a late Frido 1966 NP Ballet girl (who unfortunately for me had to go off to live in a new home shortly after having this photo taken.) She is wearing a Pinestreetstudio outfit which consists of a cape style jacket over jeans, beret and scarf with Ruthsdoll’s shoes.
My early Gotz 1969 No-navel in a very attractive darker coloured vintage-sasha outfit given to me by Susan Bulger Pomeroy for a past birthday or Christmas present.
I have teamed it with some Sasha Doll limited Kiltie tights and commercially made bar shoes and love the overall final finished look.
My Frido 1968 Fringe waif doll who I couldn’t resist buying, even though her hair had been trimmed to shoulder length, on account of her really pretty face.
She has chosen to wear an attractive outdoor outfit designed and made by Bambino Bella with the addition of JJ snowboots on her feet.
A Frido 1967 Dungaree NP with a really cute but rather sad looking face. She has on a Frilly-Prilly navy blue duffle coat and Dollydoodle jeggings and JJ laced boots.
Another Frido 1966 Brown Cord ‘open eyed style’ girl who has on a recent 2013 Limited Edition of 6 Ruthsdoll’s open fronted smocked dress which I was trying with either red or white socks (have since opted for the RED so now need to search for the other missing sock!) and a lovely pair of the new style Boneka shoes that Gillian Nash very kindly gave me as a gift on her visit up here last year. Many thanks again Gill as they look perfect with this dress.
One of my very BEST and most expensive dolls, a 1966 Frido Developmental girl with a rare shaped squarer head and face…. on very similar lines to Sasha’s first head mould for the Frido company which though never went into production.
She is wearing a Pinestreetstudio pinafore outfit, Sasha Doll’s Kiltie tights and manufactured bar shoes.
A Frido 1970 wide faced blonde Gingham doll wearing ‘the green’, a smart vintage -sasha outfit which was a Christmas gift a year or so ago from Sarah.
I have added JJ sandals in sea green to enhance this colour in her floral dress. Always love Sarah’s berets!
‘Miss Lippy’ in a Ruthsdoll’s limited edition of two Christmas 2013 dresses. She is a Frido 1966-7 Dungaree NP girl with the damaged lips. (I know that SS-R has already seen these photos privately but the rest of you haven’t.)
Notice how beautifully painted her eyes are. Have added tan socks and commercially made bar shoes.
This is my Gotz 1970 No-navel girl. I recently spent some time trying to discover which of the two years my three No-navel girls were from and she is my only one from 1970 on account of her fringe having been cut in from her centre part rather than re-rooted in. Also she has the fainter, more delicate eye and eyebrow colour paintings.
She has on an attractive vintage-sasha two piece in beige with a light blue pattern.
Riplee, a 1970s customised by Shelly girl in a bottle-green vintage-sasha pinafore that Susan Bulger Pomeroy bought me at the Chat n’ Snap last October. I have added some sweet little turquoise socks made and given to me by Sharon Humphries and navy T bar sandals by Boneka.
A 1968 Frido Dungaree Fringe girl with the darker tanned vinyl and NO fringe to her shoulder length bobbed hair. I have dressed her in another of Bambino Bella’s coat outfits, this time in a lime green coat over denim jeans. There is a matching little beanie hat that comes with it but it that unfortunately got left behind at home. Ruthsdoll’s shoes complete the look.
This is probably the doll that I have had here the longest time and I bought her nude from Marie Morgan for £800.
Although you have seen this Ruthsdoll’s limited edition (of 9) dress before on my Christmas doll I don’t think that you’ve seen it on this very pretty 1970-1 Trendon Gingham girl shown below. (Again was deciding whether to keep the original sandals that came with the outfit or opt for the sturdier laceups.)
Belle, a 1970 customised Gregor by Shelly wearing a really pretty vintage-sasha pinafore with commercially made bar shoes. (Not quite the Winter wear thickness as the others but was running short of photos to finish off this post.)
I’m afraid that some of you have seen many of these outfits before but am fast running out of outfits that you haven’t seen in past posts. Will have to search deeper into their clothing boxes.
In the pipeline over the coming next few weeks I am hoping to feature the Sasha babies in their Dollydoodle (and other) daywear, the babies in their Winter fleece jackets, my customised Sasha Dolls, and my favourite Sasha close-up photos
