‘Button up your overcoat
When the wind is free
Take good care of yourself
You belong to me.’
These lyrics, as many of you already know, are taken from one of Frank Sinatra’s famous old songs and which I thought applied themselves perfectly to this post depicting some of my Sasha Dolls in their Vintage-Sasha coats.
My 1966 Frido brunette Developmental girl wearing a peach-rust trimmed with black wool coat and matching beret teamed with comercially manufacture black bar shoes and Sasha Doll Ltd original Kiltie tights.
Secondly is my 1971 Trendon Gingham waif with trimmed hair that I purchased from the CnS in 2013, wearing an unusual black and grey patterned coat trimmed with a black velvet collar and worn with a matching black velvet beret. Black commercially made shoes and three -quarter socks complete this outfit.
Thirdly is Miss Lippy, a 1967 Frido Dungaree NP waif, in a green tweed wool coat and beret trimmed with black. She has the choice of two styles of shoes and socks. Firstly are some Ruthsdoll’s machine knitted green/beige stripped socks and green lace-up shoes.
The alternative choice are these commercially made black bar shoes and three-quarter length socks but personally I prefer the green shoes and stripped socks choice..
(Extra photos of Miss Lippy are especially for Simply-Sasha if she’s visiting us today.)
PS. We here have celebrated Shrove Tuesday since I last posted when my sister very kindly came over and made me six large scrumptious pancakes topped with freshly squeezed lemons and caster sugar and which I greedily ate one after the other and when I remembered and mentioned at the end that my late mother used to also make rabbit/cat/dog shaped ones too she very kindly made this tiny little dog one for my Sasha/Gregor kids….. as that was all the pancake mixture left in the bowl.
Thank you for dropping by here today. Please note that I ‘buttoned up my overcoat’ against the cold biting wind and ventured out to my favourite photoshoot. Parts 2 and 3 of their Winter coats will follow in the near future, so until then we wish you all a good Sasha filled week ahead.
