My very first Gotz Yellow Eyed with lashes girl was purchased from Michael O’Brian’s collection many years ago and was one of the dolls featured in his limited edition of a set of 12 facial photographs… two of which can be seen below.
He had bought this delightful doll (just an hour before I had spotted her) from Sashadolluk (and eventually he re-rooted the missing first row of her fringe before selling her on to me) but before that, had just pulled her hair over to the side and added a hair clip. She came to me wearing the original Gotz rarer pink/white striped dress with the white collar (as seen in his photo below.)
The second of his photos shows her in the Gotz white fake fur apres ski jacket.
Below, by then at home with me, she changed into a very early Karensyarn’s (now known as Karen Warnaka) brushed cotton checked dress (which I positively love the simplicity of, so still here in my collection, as it suits so many of my dolls.)
Was so thrilled to finally get one of these gorgeous wooden chairs.
Love this pose below of her concentrating on doing her little Christmas jigsaw.
Here her socks and JJ shoes replace the tights and manufactured shoes in slightly warmer weather.
Here we are playing’ mummies!’ A favourite pastime with most little girls in those days.
Below she is seen in a OOAK Ruthsdolls dress that I especially asked to have made up from the Viyella window pane checked material that she used for her pyjama outfits…
Change of hairstyle…although still with the usual fine hairs over her face. Thinking that this has unfortunately become rather a trademark of mine over the 22 years of Sasha collecting. (It seems that I don’t see them when actually taking the photos!)
…and here she has on one of Jill Mackley’s (Frocks and Socks) OOAK beautifully smocked and finely piped dresses. I loved her slightly wider face… and still tend to go for these style faces.
Another of Jill Mackley’s dresses, this time using a very attractive cream based umbrella print. The brown hair slide was off a Pintuck’s doll with the flower removed. (I used to wear identical slides to this when I was little.)
A third Jill Mackley dress, a very dainty pink/white checked seersucker and beautifully smocked dress.
(Apologies for the green hue reflected from the surrounding shrub.)
Many years later when I moved her on I dressed her in this rather pretty/dainty floral dress by Pinestreetstudios and then added a lilac ribbon to her hair. (Now looking back and with all those Sasha Doll years of experience I realised that I should have kept her.)
My second yellow eyed with lashes doll was this stunning pony tailed girl in her Gotz school uniform of a kilt, blouse and blazer…(and which so many of the UK girl’s schools are now tending to adopt.) I have always loved the pony-tailed girls AND this particular Gotz outfit so naturally couldn’t resist buying her.
Here they are together and clearly showing the first doll’s much wider and younger face.
Yet more green hue, so sorry. She is more casually dressed here in a pretty and very comfortable Dollydoodle Jersey material leisure outfit. These lovely ‘girly’ tops had now started to replace her previous plainer, more boyish, T shirts.
She is wearing a lovely vintage-sasha dress under a sweet little Molly knitted cardigan. I just love Molly’s short cardigans and now have quite a selection.
I’m still desperately trying to remember the name of the person (I have several of her finely knitted baby outfits) who knitted this dear little jacket that I bought off Sashadolluk and seen here teamed with some vintage-sasha trousers and Ruthsdolls shoes.
When the time came for her to leave here she was naturally reunited with her original outfit.
This ‘Gotz yellow eyed’ themed post will hopefully be continued next time… since it is taking me much longer than I had anticipated in trawling through my millions of photos stored in my Pictures from the year 2002 to find these somewhat earlier and rather poorly taken pics with a not so good camera,
Thanks for visiting us here today and we hope that you are enjoying this warm month of July.
