A Ra-Ra Day at Sasha Shangri-La – – Ra-Ra !!

image
I have been an admirer for some time now of the wonderful designs by the very talented Sharon Humphreys and especially her Sasha creations like her now famous Ra-Ra outfits! I asked Sharon to place me on her waiting list and she kindly added me and I was happy to wait my turn. Not long afterwards, I received an email from Sharon that it was my turn to order a Sasha design. Ra-Ra!! 🙂

image
I asked for two outfits and gave Sharon some favorite color and favorite fabric ideas. Then, I asked her if she would make an outfit for Finn.  She said yes and I was very happy! :).  As you can see, they are fantastic outfits!

Here we have Lucy in a cheery yellow outfit, Finn in the middle in his new shirt and shorts, and Kim in a pretty pink outfit.  Sharon ran ideas by me during her creative time and I liked that very much.

I wanted to take these photos outdoors but it has been rainy just about every day and, when not rainy, it has been extremely hot and humid. I just couldn’t wait any longer so it is time to share these thoughtful and colorful creations.  Sharon’s Ra-Ra designs covered them from their heads to their toes.  The three pairs of leather shoes are made by Jean Jensen.

A close view of Kim, a petite Gregor that left the factory with eyelashes and so is now a sweet little girl, Kim. You can see up close the happy applique on Kim’s pink top. I love the layering of pretty fabric and the house with a gingerbread roof made of hearts.  The bow with two flower buttons is a perfect touch. 🙂

image
I just love this outfit with the pretty dotted fabric on the headband, top, and skirt. The ricrac trim is a favorite of mine!  Her stripy socks are a pale pink and white.

Next is Lucy wearing a Ra-Ra outfit in a vivid yellow with wonderful netting and ricrac trimming too! 🙂

I love this headband on Lucy. Can you see the five buttons on her top? 🙂

Another full view for you to see. Lucy is a repainted and rerooted Gregor.  She is a great model 🙂

A close view of the sunny floral print on a very fine corduroy fabric. The applique is so lovely with the layered fabric and large blue flower.  The Ra-Ra outfit is very soft and has great, unexpected textures.  It is easy to put on the Sashas too.  What a treat! 🙂

Last, we have Finn wearing his custom outfit by Sharon. It is a great look and Sharon’s signature stripy socks are perfect!

Finn on the move! 🙂
