Pretty Girls in New Outfits

This lovely brunette has repainted eyes by Shelly. Her name is Nancy. πŸ™‚

Nancy’s lovely outfit is an ebay find and was made by Nadia in Switzerland. It arrived here a few weeks before Christmas. Β I really like it on Nancy and she is a bit taller than most of the girls here so the slacks worked very well for her. Β Her nice leather boots came with an outfit made by a talented lady in Scotland whose name escapes me.

A close up view of Nancy. I think she is beautiful. πŸ™‚

Next is Jean, a bobbed hair girl that I suspect was made in 1970 though she had no stringing to go by when she arrived here at Sasha Shangri-La. I was lucky to find a girl with her hair cut because I would not attempt hair cutting which is better left to more capable hands than mine. Her lovely cardigan was made by the talented Linda Simpson of the UK. I bought her dress from Shelly’s site and do not know the maker. Her shoes are made in the Kathe Kruse doll factory in Germany. πŸ™‚

Rena, a 2001 Gotz-Yamka

Please meet Rena, a 2001 Gotz girl also known as Yamka. She picked out this lovely ballet outfit to wear as soon as she was liberated from her tube. πŸ™‚

Rena has wanted to be a ballerina ever since she saw the Nutcracker way back when she was born in 2001. So now she finally has her own tutu and ballet slippers. A dream come true for Rena! πŸ™‚

A pretty and serious ballerina, Rena. ❀

The sweet waif Val has been wearing Sharon’s Ra-ra outfit since it came out of the package months ago. When this new outfit came several weeks ago, I convinced Val to give it a try. She agreed only if she could keep her purple striped socks on plus her much loved purple leather shoes made by Jean Jensen. That was all well and good for me because Val looks delightful in this ensemble. πŸ™‚

image
This pretty dress, with very nice detailing, was made by Maureen Hellenbeck of the Upstairs Doll Studio on Etsy though I did find this dress on ebay. I think Maureen sells on both places. πŸ™‚

I love this dress and especially the fabric, the stacked buttons, the neckline and the length! Β  It is just a fun outfit to wear! Β Val will always be a special waif to me because she came in a tiny box with no stringing in sight. Her hair has always had its own way too but that’s okay with me. Β She is a fun, trendy girl. πŸ™‚

  1. Love her colour style – very cool! The fabric looks like one of Kaffe Fassett’s Millefiore fabrics, or could be a similar one. Great choice, whichever it is xx

  2. Lovely girls in lovely outfits. It’s nice to see what others Sasha’s are wearing. I particularly like Val’s dress with her Sharon stripy purple socks and Jean Jensen shoes, just love those colours together:)xxx

  3. They all look great in their new outfits Ginger. I think sometimes the waifs are the best….they seem to have more ‘life’ somehow and characters of their own. Val looks great in her colourful dress.

    • Hi Lorraine! I agree, the waifs are so endearing and much easier to work with and photograph. When Val’s hair is all over the place, I don’t look for a brush but just give it a tweak and think, it’s Val and she likes it that way!!! Nice!!! πŸ™‚ xxx

  4. Just a little note here for those who have read this post earlier. I made a mistake on the ballet outfit description regarding the maker. A very kind viewer has helped me to learn that I have confused names. I do apologize for this and really try hard to be accurate and give credit where it is due. So, I have edited the description to remove the wrong name and thank you in advance for your understanding! ❀ xxx

  5. Lovely girls and all so nicely dressed Ginger πŸ™‚ I particularly like the fabric of Val’s dress, it’s like the purple one that I did, but a little different πŸ˜‰ Val is such a pretty girl though that I’m sure she’d look great in anything πŸ™‚
    And I also like the cross over top being worn by your later Gotz girl, Rena. It must keep her very nice and warm once she’s worked hard at her ballet lessons!
    Big hugs to you
    Sharon xxxx

    • Hi Sharon! So glad you enjoyed the post. Val has become very attached to your ra-ra dress and striped socks. It is good to see her in another outfit during the holidays. I like Rena’s sweater too. A ballerina is a welcome addition to the Sasha family! πŸ™‚ xxx
