Today I thought I would take a few photos outdoors of the two wrap dresses that I was so fortunate to win at the Festival as a helper drawing. I have called this type of dress a “shift” since I was a little girl. The printed yellow shift was made by Sally Cristopher. It was exciting to win but it was even more exciting that I was sitting next to Sally when they called my number! She explained the pattern she used had been a part of a Ted Menten challenge some time ago on the Sasha Mart. I remembered that challenge and was amazed at the many submissions Ted received and the great variety of outfits that were created. These two shifts are just wonderful because they are pretty, they are easy to put on (snaps in the back), they have clean, simple lines that are perfect for summer, and they are both reversable! So, I really won 4 different shifts!
This is Blair, a pale faced 1968 Gotz brunette Sasha and she is wearing the pretty shift made by Sally. It is a yellow printed cotton and has a lovely floral design. The shift is tagged and also came with matching pants. Blair’s brown leather sandals are by Jean Jensen.
Next is Sloan, a pale faced 1968 Gotz Blonde Sasha. Sloan is wearing the second shift that is not labeled so the maker is unknown. The striped fabric has large, faded red stripes with the smaller green and white stripes. It gives a look of water color painting. Sloan’s white leather sandals are by Jean Jensen.
A back view of their shifts. Both girls have pretty, thick hair. When I adopted Blair,
I sent her to Pat Pellerito for a spa treatment and Pat wrote that her hair was the thickest hair she had seen. She styled it beautifully as you see here. I love her hair!
These two have become best friends and they came to Sasha Shangri-La within a month of each other. They both came in complete, original brown corduroy dresses with white aprons and brown leather shoes. I have safely stored their outfits for another day.
