FINAL Part of The Broods Unusual or OOAK Outfits

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.)
1.

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.
2.

3.

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!
4.

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.
5.

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.
6.

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.
7.

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.
8.

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.
8.

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!)
9.

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!
10.

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.
11.

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.)
12.

Pinestreetstudio girls Dungaree outfit. Florals and checks together was very daring in those days.
13.

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.
14.

15.

Doll Works cricket jumper.
16.

Cricket bat and ball (and stumps not shown) by Joyce Jordan’s husband.
17.

Spot the Gregor!
18.

Pinestreetstudio top and combat trousers.
19.

20.

Karati outfit by Sandra Wessell.
21.

Commercially made White Water Rafting outfit.
22.

Commercially made Texan hat given to my lads as a gift.
23.

Commercially made straw cowboy hat, given again as a gift.
24.

Robin Hood OOAK outfit made by vintage-sasha for Jac to wear at the Nottingham Forest themed 2015 SCW. Many thanks again Sarah.
25.

26.

Please note the details on his arrows.
27.

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.
28.

29.

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!’
30.

Ruthsdolls baby sailor outfit.
31.

Two outfits put together by me from oddments. N.Gould’s hat and shorts. Gillet maker unknown. DD T shirt.
32.

Ruthsdolls combat trousers and fake fur gillet, Phyliss G. Angora jumper and beret.
33.

34.

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
35.

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!’

Third Part of the Brood’s More Unusual Outfits.

Good morning once again to the third part of this series.
First up today is my 1970s Gotz No-navel in an attractive knitted coat (teamed with Sashadollstyle brown cord trousers and JJ brown boots) that I won off eBay a long time ago. I’ve always loved these colours on this fair haired brown eyed doll.

1.

Unfortunately again I don’t know anything about who made this baggy Dungaree outfit that I bought off Sashadolluk… and seen below on my Trendon 1973 Pumpkin stringed, Velvet wigged girl. Shoes by Joyce Jordan and her husband.
2.

Complete and very attractive duffle coat outfit here by Sashadollstyle and worn with UGG boots on a later Gotz Annette doll..
3.

Another unknown maker suede jacket bought off Sashadolluk sales pages and teamed with a Pinestreetstudio scarf and later Gotz 1990s combat trousers on my 1970s customised by Shelly, lad Jac. (This is one example that with no longer being able to knit or sew myself, of how I enjoyed putting the odd outfit together. JJ boots.
4.

We all love a bit of FUR! Again an oddment, maker unknown, picked up from Sashadolluk and teamed with some commercially made boots and modelled on my 1969/70 wide faced, enhanced by Shelly greening eyed little poppet.
5.

These two baby OOAK Ruthsdolls outfits were specially commissioned by me for my 1990s Gotz Jennine twins to match my older Sasha girl’s dress as I just adored that material. (These two babies are featured in one of the Three Anne’s books, Sasha Dolls Identification, as the baby on the left has blue eyes, a factory mistake, whilst the left has the correct brown eyes.)

6.

I think that I am correct in saying that this sweet little baby sun-suit outfit was made by Sandara Wessell, although it is some years ago now that I’m not sure of how I came to buy it.
7.

This lovely OOAK, customised by Kelly, 1990s Gotz Modern doll, Stella, is wearing a little beautifully knitted ballet outfit, by my local Sasha/teacher friend from a pattern from the Sasha Friends Magazine and worn over a Trendon ballet outfit but with Daisy,Daisy ballet pumps.
8.

Another specially commissioned by me Ruthsdolls baby angel top outfit (as it reminds me of clothing that my three brothers and my daughter wore) worn here by a delightful little Trendon baby with such sweetly painted ‘eye lash flicked’ eyes.
9.

Apologies for this blurred old photo (but it is the only one that I have) of a Pinestreetstudip outfit on a 1970 Trendon girl. JJ sandals.
10.

A Pinestreetstudio Artitsts outfit complete with a water colour painting.
11.

Unfortunately another little outfit that I now can’t quite remember who made it or from where I bought it…but do know that I’ve had it here a very long time!

12

13.

Another OOAK brightly coloured outfit that I asked Ruth to make up for me using a piece of my own seersucker material.
14.

I was so ‘taken’ with this PUNK outfit on the right, that was Anne-Marie Hollis’s made up by Ruth Hartley under her instructions, that I asked Ruth if she could make me something from that era. So she very kindly made this black and lime green outfit (and then sent it to me as a Christmas present.) Her daughter Lisa made me the matching boots and they both came up with the idea of adding these coloured hair piece clips  so that I wouldn’t have to buy a coloured wig.

15.

16.

Lastly for today…ALERTING Simply Sasha!!! Miss Lippy in a OOAK Ruthsdolls dress made up for me from left over scraps of hers and my materials.
17.

Many thanks for dropping by and hopefully I’ll see you here next week to what might be the final part (although I’m sure that I have many more outfits in this category) but it’s taking me far too long to trawl through my Picture’s folders back through the years to 1996 to find these  necessary photos.

My apologies to those people expecting a parcel/package from me but there has been a slight delay due to really rough health last week.

Part Two Of Some Of The Broods More Unusual Outfits

Welcome to another post of these rarer or OOAK outfits that I have been lucky enough to buy for them over the 21 years.

A Ruth Brigg’s Daisy Daisy Easter outfit that I chose the material for and had specially commissioned when I met Ruth at a local Sasha Funday.. The detail and fine piping embellishments in these next two dresses are simply wonderful.
1.

2.

Have added this little knitted bunny jacket and hat outfit (and to which I added a pair of Ruthsdolls tights!) which I bought off the Sashadolluk sales pages.
3.

Placed n front of a misty morning looking backdrop it made an unusual Easter card for my close Sasha friends last year.
4.

I liked this plain and simple Pinestreetstudio office style outfit when I bought it… but later felt that bit was perhaps a little too old looking for my Sashas, so sold it on.
5.

This is a two of a three piece Tommy Hillfiger outfit (there is also a smart and very detailed little sleeveless denim jacket too but I think that Fritz had comandiered that at this time!) I teamed it with JJ sandals and original Trendon stripped socks and this dear little shoulder bag (though can’t quite remember where this originally came from.)
6.

Here is the little jacket on Biker Fritz and on another of my lads busily repairing his tri-cycle.
7.

7a.

It’s not like me to forget who made this very trendy, at that time cullotte, outfit (I too, had a pair like these in this colour!) but I’m now thinking that it has the style of a Betsy May outfit.
8.

Being somewhat of a ‘sporty’ person myself and teaching Physical education to the 5-11 year olds at my Primary school I was thrilled to see this little outfit appear on eBay about 15 years ago. As you can see I won it (and for £1.50) and discovered that it was made by Marks and Spencer for one of their rag dolls. I teamed it with one of Jean Jenson’s very early lace up shoes in the softest of the soft leather. It is being worn here by one of my trimmed haired, darker skinned 1968 Fringe girls… WITHOUT a fringe as the fringing machine had broken down and she missed having her single row fringe cut by hand. She has been with me since 1998 and has the most shiny and silky hair.
9.

Pinestreetsudio studio style/length brushed cotton dress (based on a Laura Ashley design) and pantaloons and stretchy velvet headband. This is on my Gotz slate eyed waif wearing a strawberry Peggy-sue Monique wig that I think really suits her..
10.

11.

Pinestreetstudio milking maids outfit. Again this shows Cindy Patrick’s wonderful style in combining different materials. Unfortunately her rather charming cream milk churn wasn’t included in this photo here.
12.

13.

A Daisy-Daisy pure silk bridesmaid’s dress, organza hair ribbon and pink silk ballet shoes that all come in an organza bay sealed with a white Daisy, a trademark of Ruth Brigg’s and a lovely extra little touch. (Must try to remember to take a photo of them to show you at some point in time.)
14.

This very photo above photo was ‘photoshopped’ onto this tree blossom for use in one of the Spring Sasha World magazines.
15.

I don’t know who made this very pretty baby dress and pinafore as it came on this this sweet Lisa Hartley re-rooted early baby.
16.

This was another very early on outfit knitted by Sashadollstyle and being worn here by another of my Lisa re-rooted babies.
17.

18.

Another little Sasha knits that was released by The Doll Works as a pattern but being then unable to knit due to my Rheumatoid Arthritis I asked Andrea is she would kindly knit me one. This girl is a customised later Gotz Stella by Kelly Wenarsky.
19.

Still on the ‘knitteds’ this is a sweet little outfit that I asked Christine Durand to knit for me, although many moons ago now. She included this dear little Teddy Bear wearing his own pink coat.
20.

This stunning Japanese outfit was another eBay win and so I don’t know who made it. I added the Pinestreetstudio flower hair piece and the JJ flip-flops to complete the outfit. The outfit is first seen on my very pretty Gotz slate eyed pony-tailed girl (this photo was used in a Sasha World article on Sashas around the World.)
The second two pics. show it more recently on my stunning wide faced pale skinned Gotz girl.
21.

22.

23

This St. George’s Day outfit was made by The Doll Works and was naturally used on my St. George’s Day and any special English celebrations posts. I added the St. George’s Day flag.
24.

This very striking patchwork dress was made by Francis Trickett and is being worn by my 1966/67 side parted brunette Gingham NP, with her beautiful and very detailed brown eyes. JJ’s bar shoes complete the picture.
25.

A dear little, and very finely knitted baby dress with frilled pants by Sheila Vincent can be seen here, on my one and only bought MIB 1969 quirky eye browed baby Nightdress. .
26.

This is a delightful little baby Romper suit designed and made for a Sasha world Magazine project by Rosemary Shortell and very kindly given to me as a gift for my 60th birthday, as it reminded me of the rompers that my late mother used to make and smock for my eldest two brothers. Recently we sent to be entered into the 2017 Sasha Festival’s Children’s Fund Auction. My chubby checked 1970s baby Woolly is seen wearing this before it left here.
27.

Finally for this weeks post is a OOAK Summer sundress (photos requested by one of my blog followers last week.) I sent a piece of seersucker material to Ruth Hartley and asked her to make me up this little dress like I used to wear when I was young.(I was so thrilled with it that I then sent another piece of the material in pink for another one.) It is seen below on three different dolls.
28.

29.

30.

32.

Thanks for visiting us once again and we hope to see you next week when this theme will, my health allowing, continue.
In the meantime have an enjoyable Sasha filled week ahead whilst I’m continuing on the major task of deleting my millions of unwanted or ‘rubbish’ photos in My Pictures!

Some of The Brood’s More Unusual Outfits.

Thought that this might prove to be interesting… although I have to admit that I’m still using past photos. Just don’t seem to have the energy or inclination to pick up the camera and head outside with them.

First up is this dear little Gotz slate eyed waif in my very first N.Gould outfit…(although in those early days N.Gould was known by another name but which unfortunately I can’t now remember.)
Her red JJ bar shoes were Jean’s very first attempt at this style at my special request as, as many of my close Sasha friends, know I’m not a fan of the Mary-Jane shoes.
1.

In second place today is Gotz waif Holly in another unusual N.Gould outfit, again  purchased from the beginning of my Sasha collecting years….although I now see that I have replaced the original re-cycled heavier jeans for a lighter denim pair. (This was one of the photos that I was missing from last Sunday’s post.)
2.

3.

Another very similar and unusual N.Gould outfit, that again was missing from last week’s Ochre Eye post seen here on my first ochre eyed girl with Ruthsdolls distressed boots.
4.

5.

This was my very first Pinestreetstudio shorts outfit and it was because of Cindy’s individual style and flare that I bought that second one, featured below. She wears Ruthsdolls folk art shoes… but ordered without the folk art.
6.

A very smart Pinestreetstudio shorts and top set with JJ sandals. I have always adored this unusual outfit with it’s mix of materials and was quite sad when it was asked to be bought last week…(but it is going to a lovely Sasha home where I know that it will be treasured.)
7.

A Kelly Wenarsky customised Gotz modern pale skinned Stella, seen here in a Dollworks school pinafore with ABC 123 embroidery around the skirt hem and a pencil and pencil sharpener buttons. Red JJ sandals complete the look. (I don’t plan on ever parting with this sweet little unique outfit as it reminds me of my wonderfully rewarding teaching days.)
8.

9.

Pink/cream Ski outfit, using Susanna Lewis pattern, beautifully knitted by my local Sasha/ex head teacher friend with Ruthsdolls combat ski pants and JJ snow boots. (More of her delightful knitting to be shown in later posts.)
10.

This really attractive fisherman’s oilskin outfit was one of the US Sasha Festivals gift outfits that I was lucky enough to purchase many years ago. (PS for Simply Sasha…this is Ross when he had his original hair!)
11.

12.

This was another of my favourite Pinestreetstudio outfits and really quite daring when I bought it nearly 20 years ago. (Since this photo was taken I have replaced those boots with some fab. distressed Ruthsdolls boots.)
13.

Another of Pinestreetstudio’s dramatic outfits. How I loved Cindy’s work.
14.

15.

There is a little second chance story attached to this very pretty and dainty OOAK Petrana dress that I sadly missed winning first time (and by only £1 on eBay.) A year or so after Judith (DD) emailed me (thanks again Judith) to say that it had come back up for sale on Sashadolluk on the sales pages… and so I was finally able to purchase it after all. (A couple of months ago it was asked for back by it’s first owner… so two second chances have been achieved.)
16.

Another charming US Festival souvenir that I was able to purchase with this miniature Chinese bowl and chopsticks that were presented as a table gift in a real Chinese food take-away carton seen here on my ex Gotz slate eyed ponytailed girl.
17.

A Pinestreetstudio cape set which I have always thought looked stunning on this doll (although imo  the lack of finishes on the scarf and beret let it down.)
18.

Lastly for today two ‘very special to me’ commissioned Polo replica outfits by Ruthsdolls. Ross and Sasha Chon are seen here at Sussex Polo Club grounds on one of their fields that was named after me. How did that come about I can hear some of you asking! Well as a family we all try to give slightly unusual birthday presents to each other and so just before my 60th birthday, the Sussex Polo Club (where Chon was a member and also worked as secretary, umpire and commentator) had an Auction to raise money for Charity and the main prize was that you could choose to name their newest ground. Chon won it (although at large expense as you can imagine!) and as you can see named it after me.

19.

16a

This is the first replica outfit that I asked Ruth to make me a copy of as this was the shirt that Chon wore when her team, WILD THINGS, won The Joules Ladies Polo Championship. (This doll, as you can see here below looks so very like my daughter that I named her Chon.)
20.

Here is the real Chon (second in from the left) and her team receiving their awards.
21.

The second Polo outfit is this orange/black one that Chon designed (and had made up in Argentina when she was out there on a training course) for her own team, DARK HORSE. PS. for Simply Sasha. This is Ross again with his original, but now falling hair.
PPS. Please note that you are allowed, as seen here, to wear jeans when just practising on the fields but it HAS to be Polo Whites (as they are termed) and brown, (not black) boots in a match or tournament!

22.

23.

Here is the outfit on display at the 2015 Chat n’ Snap.
24.

25.

26.

Here is Chon, in the orange helmet on Naranja, one of her ponies (wearing the orange leg bandages) playing in a couple of matches.
27.

28.

29.

30.

On this non Sasha, but ‘pleasant for me’ family note, I’m calling an end to this post as I know that I can, and tend to, go on and on adding photos…..!
Hope that you have enjoyed seeing some of my Broods ‘different’ outfits and which I will hopefully continue on in a couple more posts… if you’d like me too. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy next week, especially if you are on holiday.

My Ex Ochre Highlight Eyed Girls

This was the very first of my ochre highlight Gotz girls purchased from Sashadolluk in the early years of 2000.
1.

2.

Unfortunately I haven’t had the time to search for many of her photos taken whilst she was with us as they are no longer stored in my Pictures but on hundreds of individual CD discs… but here are just a few, note that many were taken WAY back when I first started collecting and before I really got ‘the hang’ of it all!

Some of the very first Dollydoodles leisure wear for the girls
3.

4.

An early Ruthsdolls dress.
5.

6.

7.

8.

When she was ready to leave here after many years I dressed her in this Ruthsdolls outfit.
9.

10.

11.

12.

13.

My next ochre eyed girl was this little waif who I named Holly and she became a little sister to my first girl….but who unfortunately rather stole the limelight over the years they were together.
14.

15.

Wearing a sweet little Molly outfit.
16.

17.

I was never really sure whether this Summer beach outfit on her was rather a little too much… but decided to include it!
18.

This Ruthsdolls dress teamed with a Denise Owen beret, I felt was a better choice.
19.

20.

A little vintage-sasha added to the mix.
21.

22.

23.

Plus a little dress by Jill Mackley of Frocks and Socks.
24.

25.

…with the addition of a dear little Molly cardi for the cooler times.
26.

A little bit of fun fur!
27.

28.

Dressed ready to leave for Sashadolluk to find a new home in this rather striking Ruthsdolls outfit.
29.

30.

31.

This was another of my ex-girls ochre highlight bought privately from Anne-Marie Willis and I just loved her from the moment that I set eyes on her. I don’t usually go for the pretty dolls as I tend to prefer those with that have lived a little and got a character of their very own.
32.

33.

34.

35.

Here are some photos of her whilst living here and wearing a very attractive Pinestreetstudio outfit and straw boater and JJ sandals.
36..

37.

38.

39.

40.

41.

She naturally went back into her original brown Cord Dress outfit to be sold.

Many thanks for dropping by and we hope that you have enjoyed viewing my Yellow and Ochre highlight eyed girls. Have a super August Summer month.
PS. Next post planned will hopefully feature ‘Some of my more unusual and OOAK outfits.’

PPS.Simply Sasha has just requested a couple of photos of Miss Lippy although these have absolutely nothing to do with the theme of this post.

My Past Yellow Eyed Gotz Girls…Part 2

Beginning off with these two photos of the blonde pony-tailed doll wearing this attractive vintage-sasha trouser and top set that I unfortunately couldn’t locate in time for my last post.
1.

2.

Todays offerings begin with another pony-tailed girl but this time a red head bought, as always, from Sashadolluk wearingnher original broiwn farmpants.
3.

4.

Here she is wearing a Dollwork’s coat, Trendon Kiltie tights and commercially made T bar shoes. These photos were many taken years ago when I didn’t have very many outfits and taken with a much cheaper camera… but are now proving to be a good record of my 22 Sasha collecting years.
The delightful little Teddy Bear that she is holding was a super gift from Nikki of Sashadollstyle in Northern Ireland who made Sasha clothing and ran a website and blogpost.
5.

6.

This is a pretty, but simple, Pinestreetstudio dress. I had quite a few of these dresses at that time all made from varying different fabrics.
7.

8.

She left here wearing an original brown cord dress.
9.

10.

Don’t seem to have any extra photos of these next two yellow eyed girls that I must have had in my collection at some point. Not sure how that happened or just that I haven’t been able to locate them in my masses of ‘saved’ photos… but if I do manage to find them in the meantime I’ll add then in.
11.

12.

13.

14.

….But I do remember this, my last yellow eyed lass with lashes who I had living with me for a year and took part in the SCW Brood’s display there.
15.

16.

I bought this stunning vintage-sasha outfit especially for this doll and so loved it on her that I don’t think that she ever took it off!
17.

18.

19.

20.

These next last photos of her are my very favourite. I just ADORE her facial expression here, her little pouting, sulky mouth. The Gotz company were excellent at achieving all these unique and wonderful expressions in comparision to the general overall ‘pretty, pretty’ looks of the Frido/Trendo/Sasha Doll Ltd dolls.
21.

22.

She left me wearing this very smart window checked Petrana dress and little handmade soft leather boots as I didn’t want to part with ‘her’ outfit but then, being the good Sasha mother, I succumbed and sent it on to her as a gift.
23.

24.

Thanks for popping by and have a wonderful week…hopefully next week I’m planning to be showing my Orche Highlight girls as an ending to this theme.

My Yellow Eyed Gotz Girls Over The Years

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.)
1.

The second of his photos shows her in the Gotz white fake fur apres ski jacket.
2.

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.)
3.

4.

Was so thrilled to finally get one of these gorgeous wooden chairs.
5.

6.

7.

Love this pose below of her concentrating on doing her little Christmas jigsaw.
8.

Here her socks and JJ shoes replace the tights and manufactured shoes in slightly warmer weather.
9.

10.

Here we are playing’ mummies!’ A favourite pastime with most little girls in those days.
11.

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…
12.

13.

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!)
14.

15.

…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.
16.

17.

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.)
18.

19.

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.)
20.

21.

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.)
22.

23.

24.

25.

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.
26.

27.

28.

Here they are together and clearly showing the first doll’s much wider and younger face.
29.

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.
