I’ve always liked how many Sasha collectors after a while of collecting tend to favour certain designers and sewers over others! In my case my dolls are particularly known for wearing clothing mainly by Ruthsdolls, Dollydoodles, Vintage-Sasha, Pinestreetstudios, Sashadollstyle, Sashawardrobe, Jill Mackley…… and Kate Smith’s ‘little knitteds’ plus footwear by the late Jean Jenson.
I also have a few outfits by Rosemary Shortell, Betsy-May, Sashapotamus, The Doll Works, Eseacaper, Bambino Bella, NGould and Phyliss Goedeke.
Just lately I have decided to add Sharon Humphrey’s cute little Summer outfits to their wardrobe and have recently bought another three to put with my first two (which many of you have already seen.)
As it was a gloriously hot sunny day yesterday I told some of the girls that they could help me set up the new croquet set outside on the lawn and use this as their ‘cat walk’ to model these latest SH outfits.
Unfortunately after having only taken these two photos above after the fifteen minutes of setting up I realised that the sun had already ‘caught’ my face so being very prone to skin Cancer I had to take everything back inside and start all over again in the shade of the conservatory. (Such a pity as my camera shows up so much clearer detail when ‘snapping’ outside…. as you can clearly see with the above two photos compared to the ones below.)
This very pretty 1970ish Trendon blonde Gingham doll is wearing the first of Sharon’s attractive new ra-ra skirted outfits…. and I would much appreciate your opinion or view point in your comment as to which of JJ sandals you like the best with the outfit…..the closed-in fronted pair or the ones with the diamond and spot cut-outs?
Next up is Lucy, my Sarah Williams re-root using my 1969 Gregor doll, Luke. She is wearing a very attractive beige/pale olive green/white linen trouser two piece. As we know from our own experience that linen is a natural fibre which allows us to breath through it and so keep cooler. (Always love it when two contrasting patterned materials are used.) Dorisanne gave them the lovely Boneka sandals which you’ll agree are just the perfect footwear to wear with it.
Their superb croquet set was part of the wooden outdoor garden activity box that was handmade by Anna Page, (Dollmum) and bought from Dee’s Chat n’ Snap for the Brood’s combined Christmas present. It includes this croquet game, a quoit set, rope ladder and a skipping rope and which will be featured in future posts.
Next we haved an early 70s Trendon girl who has been re-rooted by Jackie Rhydstrom in auburn. She has on a very pretty ra-ra skirted outfit in pink, again by Sharon Humphreys consisting of a neat fitting pale pink jersey long sleeved top, a cotton two tired skirt and a choice of long pink/white striped socks or short pink with a little darker pink heart pattern and top trim.
As well as asking your opinion about the long or short socks I’d also be interested to hear whether you prefer her FCP hair tied in bunches or plaited in braids as I am still undecided?
These last two outfits are my first two from Sharon (and which you have seen before) but these two girls, Sophie and Denise, wanted to join in this post so that they too could try out the croquet set.
This dainty blue/pink floral ra-ra skirt has a pretty net under-skirt and grey top with pink/white striped socks with a little pink lace top trim.
My very first Sharon Humphrey’s outfit that she so kindly gave them (as I forgot to put a final bid on it when it was listed on eBay) to say thank you for me helping her with a few doll choices.
Sorry forgot to add the two toned pink striped socks that go with it here.
PS. I left Miss Lippy having a little go with the croquet set just in case SS-R pops by expecting to see her……
She is wearing a much seen OOAK Ruthsdoll’s dress that I asked Ruth to make up a long time ago.
Thanks for visiting us again and have an enjoyable and Sasha filled week.
