A Wonder in White

This week on facebook they are encouraging posts of Sasha dolls dressed in white. Following that lead, I dressed Sara in a white studio outfit made by Carol Mitchell. Carol skillfully made this outfit using material from antique baby baptism gowns. ❤️

I thought it would be fun to show Sara putting on the pieces of the outfit.  Sara recently joined the family here at Sasha Shangri-La. ❤


Sara is ready to begin.

Perfect pantaloons and just the right length. 🙂

Such lovely detailing.  The scalloped hem is very pretty. 🙂


Next is a beautiful slip also with nice detailing and a scalloped hem. 🙂


Pretty ribbon straps.  ❤️


This slip would make a lovely summer dress. It is so very hot here today and may reach 100 degrees so I am taking indoor photos once again.  I am so looking forward to taking photos outdoors again!   Next, we have one more layer to put on. 🙂


The studio dress is so beautiful and feels very soft to the touch. 🙂


Sara loves this dress.❤️


I love this dress too. 🙂


Her sleeves up close.


A peek at the layers.  Sara is wearing black leather studio style shoes made by Jean Jensen. ❤️


Another view.


Up close. ❤️


Sara and I hope you enjoyed this post in “white”.  Thank you for visiting with us today. 🙂


We hope you have a wonderful weekend and week to come.  August is nearly over now and soon we will be in the month of September and looking for our lovely Fall weather and scenery. 🙂 xxx


Hugs to everyone! xxx


A few waterlogue images to enjoy. 🙂

  1. Thank you for all your lovely comments, Ginger!! I’m so glad you and Sara are enjoying this outfit. It’s so rewarding to save some of the precious embroidery and lace from christening gowns that had deteriorated to the point where they would have been thrown out – and then turn them into dresses for Sasha!

    After some hand surgery in January, I’m looking forward to being able to do this kind of sewing again hopefully soon!!


    • Hi Carol and thank you so much for writing. I love your outfits and especially the two that I have that you created from antique christening gowns. A beautiful idea to recycle lovely and special fabrics. ❤

      I wish you all the very best with your hand surgery and, before you know it, you will be sewing again and making such lovely creations. Wonderful! 🙂 xxx

  2. Lovely post of the beautiful Sara in the lovely outfit made by Carol.

    I have started a ‘In White’ post as well, but didn’t want to post it on the same day as the Music Festival 🙂

  3. Oh! Oh! OH! HOW could YOU do this to ME and on our last UK 2016 Bank Holiday Weekend???… I mean…SHOW my very favourite ‘just missed buying by half-an-hour’ doll and dressed so beautifully!
    I’m sad and almost in tears seeing again this ‘so disappointingly missed purchasing’ girl!
    One good helpful thing though is that it’s more acceptable for me, having recently met you in May at the SCW. knowing that she now lives with you in an excellent Sasha home surrounded by a host of wonderful doll friends. (Don’t worry though as I’m sure that I’m sure that I will get over it, as I usually do in these cases, given time!!!)

    Quite like the new style, with the white {but not the black!} lines, waterlogue images… though not as much as the older original styled ones.

    I remember reading about Carol making these beautiful Sasha dresses (6 of them if I remember rightly) .from some baby Christening gowns.
    Enjoy the coming week.

    • Hi Kendal and thank you for writing. I am so very sorry that I made you sad by showing Sara again. She is hard to ignore since she really stands out in a crowd and she seemed the perfect one for the “white” post.

      The waterlogue images with the black lines are called “technical” and are really unusual. Sometimes the normal waterlogue images do not translate well with Sasha’s eyes and they make the dolls look terribly “splotchy” and a bit scary to me. That is why I am tying out some different types. I appreciate the feedback very much. 🙂

      I remember when Carol made these outfits too and I was very lucky to get two of them for the Sashas here on Cow Creek. Thank you for the lovely week’s wishes! 🙂 xxx

  4. Sara really looks angelic in her beautifully made Carol ensemble. I loved seeing the layers as they went on and all the detailing. I feel very lucky to also own one of Carol’s wonderful Studio style outfits and since getting it my chosen Sasha has not taken it off. Have a wonderful day Sara and mommy ❤

  5. Gosh Ginger. Your photos of this amazing NP and her incredible Studio style dress are breathtaking. The dress is beyond words with layer upon layer of intricate detail. Your Sara deserves such a dress. I can picture her frolicking about outdoors. Looking forward to seeing more of her in the future, please?

    • Thank you Cathy and I am glad you enjoyed seeing Carol’s outfit too. Sara is settling in well here on the farm. I hope your week is very wonderful too, it should cool down some on Thursday for us! 🙂 xxx

  6. A beautiful girl in a beautiful outfit. The detail in her studio outfit is gorgeous and I do love seeing Sasha’s in white.
    Sara looks beautiful in the white outfit and she seems to be settling in well. We hope you also have a lovely week ahead with lovely weather but that’s not too hot! 🙂 xxx

    • Hi Dee and thank you for the lovely comment. I had responded to Cathy under your name and have no clue why this happened….I must claim a “senior” moment. 😉

      Our weather is still very hot and humid but we are told the heat will break on Thursday with a rain storm and then we will have a few days of relief from the heat. Thank goodness!

      I hope your weather is good and that your construction project is moving ahead as planned. 🙂 xxx

  7. What a beautiful girl in her lovely white outfit…..I love to see Sasha dolls in white, well any tanned dolls in white to be honest. The white fabric really does ‘pop’ against the tan skin 🙂
    Big hugs Sharon xxx

    • Thank you Sharon. I agree that white is so becoming on the tanned dolls. This gown by Carol is very lovely by itself but when a pretty girl like Sara wears it, it is a beautiful sight to see. 🙂 xxx
