Hello again from all of us here for the final part of The Brood’s unusual or OOAK outfits.
First up today is this dear little Chinese Street Girl outfit and definitely my very favourite for today. Rosie Shortell made it from scaps and oddments for one of her dolls (on which she had customised the eyes to look like they should be for a little Chinese girl)… but when she saw just how impressed I was with it she gave it to me for my dolls to wear. Luckily I already had these boots by Ruthsdolls. (It has quite rightly now been returned to her.)
Not sure if I bought this knitted hat and jumper from eBay or Sashadolluk but felt that it ‘looked the part’ for dog walking when teamed with Dollydoodle’s leggings and JJ’s long red boots.
My bobbed haired 1967 NP whose younger sister is seen later on and secondly on a Gotz ochre eyed mid 1960s doll.
I mentioned this little pink seersucker dress along with last week’s orange set but couldn’t find the photo to go with it then. My material/ Ruthsdolls design and making. Ruthsdolls Folk art shoes but without the folk art on a very pretty Frido 1969/70 FCP girl!
Unfortunately my memory is failing me again BUT I’m thinking that this ‘very trendy for that era’ Dungaree outfit was made by either Pinestreetstuduo or N.Gould, and being worn by one of my 1966/67 Dungaree girls. JJ sandals.
Another Ruthsdolls dungaree outfit in a dainty delicate colouring in contrast to the one above and seen here on my 1966/67 NP, with eyes painted by Kristina, the Manchester art student. JJ flip-flops.
This was perhaps one of my most striking outfits and one that I know has been seen here time and time again. Made by Pinestreetsudios but here on my 1969 Gotz No-navel rather than on Gotz Holly… for a change. Ruthsdolls distressed boots.
It’s a good job that I’m soon to be retiring from the Sasha World as here is another dress set that I now can’t remember from where I purchased it. (There is another very similar one too that I bought but haven’t managed to locate that photo as yet.) This length of dress reminds me of mine, and then my daughter’s childhood dress lengths.
Me, though not sure at what age (guessing under two years?) whilst living with my Mother at her best friend’s house down in Minehead, Somerset, during the War when Father was away in Egypt fighting with the Army.
Chon on her second birthday with her birthday present, a Raleigh Little Trike. I just loved those bobbles hanging on her socks! Remember too those ‘Jumping Jack’ shoes? (Please note that I knitted her cardigan… in the days when my hands allowed me to knit!)
Chon, with me obviously being rather on the naughty side and trying to get another years wear out of her St’ Lucy’s school Summer dress!
Not such an unusual dress, but definitely a OOAK, that Steve gave me after I had admired it when one of his new dolls arrived wearing it.
Seen here with a Jane Woodbridge cardigan and a pair of real UGG boots on a very sweet looking mid 60s little slate eyed Gotz waif.
A really smart looking grey denim Pinestreetstudip Sailor dress, won off eBay on a trimmed haired Frido 1967 NP, (younger sister to my now famous bobbed haired Blue Cord girl seen at the beginning of the post.)
Pinestreetstudio girls Dungaree outfit. Florals and checks together was very daring in those days.
The Doll Works’ David Beckham football outfit. When Andrea first made this with a No 1 on the shirt and shorts I had to email and tell her that David’s no was 7.
Doll Works cricket jumper.
Cricket bat and ball (and stumps not shown) by Joyce Jordan’s husband.
Spot the Gregor!
Pinestreetstudio top and combat trousers.
Karati outfit by Sandra Wessell.
Commercially made White Water Rafting outfit.
Commercially made Texan hat given to my lads as a gift.
Commercially made straw cowboy hat, given again as a gift.
Robin Hood OOAK outfit made by vintage-sasha for Jac to wear at the Nottingham Forest themed 2015 SCW. Many thanks again Sarah.
Please note the details on his arrows.
Commercially made outfits for Sainsbury’s Homebase’s own rag dolls. There were FOUR in the series. The other two were Santa and a Snowman’s outfits but couldn’t find the photos.
OOAK vintage-sasha Maid Marion outfit made for me to display my Gotz pale skinned, slate eyed Sasha girl, with her hair re-rooted by Bettina at the Medieval Castle display at the CnS. Thanks again Sarah. As the saying goes… ‘No-body does it better!’
Ruthsdolls baby sailor outfit.
Two outfits put together by me from oddments. N.Gould’s hat and shorts. Gillet maker unknown. DD T shirt.
Ruthsdolls combat trousers and fake fur gillet, Phyliss G. Angora jumper and beret.
Lastly my Lisa re-rooted early baby is wearing an outfit that I knitted many years ago for my daughter’s Thumbellina Rocking Cot doll that has just re-surface during my latest garage’s tidy up. She is holding a dear little doll, a get well gift some years ago, from Cathy Buckley-Mellor
This was meant to just be a SHORT post to finish off this theme and then for me to say that I shall now be taking a complete beak from all my Media activities (Blogs, Facebook, Messenger etc.) whilst I undergo some more necessary investigations and tests for my recent still on-going ill health.
Hopefully I’ll be back blogging asap… especially as I’ve just paid yesterday for an extra 10gb of blog space and the motto that I try to live by is ‘Waste not, want not!’
