The newest Sasha studio doll addition to Sasha Shangri-La is the sweetest of little girls named Joanie. She is a pure delight and she sings daily which lifts me up especially now that I am home most of each day.
Joanie arrived in a green checked studio dress that is without a label but appears to be original. Gwennie immediately extended her sisterly love to Joanie. Both girls have had some repairs in places on their lovely faces which is a sure sign that these older girls have been truly loved by others over the years. I am continuing their love story. ❤
I took a few photos of Joanie when she arrived last Fall.
This pair of dear ones really brighten my day. 😊
Sisters forever. ❤
A nice photo of the pair and a waterlogue image too.
While the girls were modeling, sweet Joanie noticed that Gwennie’s dress was older and showed signs of wear. So she offered her dress to Gwennie! What a nice and generous gesture towards her sister. 😊
So pretty Gwennie tried on Joanie’s dress and I think it looks lovely on her. Do you agree?
You might remember that Gwennie was my first Sasha doll and I am very attached to her. I adopted her from Marie Morgan who was very kind and allowed me to pay for her by a layaway plan. Gwennie is a B-III studio doll. The B designates a cloth body and the III designates the type of face mold. Sasha designed four different face molds for her child dolls. ❤
Gwennie loves her dress very much but she immediately asked me to find a nice outfit for Joanie to wear so they both would have new outfits. 😊
I asked the very talented Janet Myhill-Dabbs to help us find an outfit. She found this wonderful studio-length, vintage dress that was among studio/course doll clothing she had acquired and it is perfect with Joanie’s green eyes. Janet knitted her cardigan and fabulous hat and made her lovely felt shoes. I added her onesie and her knitted socks and now Joanie has a new, fantastic and unique outfit. Janet suggested to put her braids up on each side which is a perfect enhancement to her pretty face and outfit. 🌹
Speaking of faces, Joanie’s face mold is a type I. Since she has a cloth body, she is a B-I studio doll.
A close up view of the dress details. I love this fabric which is silk I believe and I really like the unusual fabric design . ❤
Lovely matching shoes and warm socks. 😊
The cardigan is very pretty and the hat is fantastic! I love the Pom Pom on the bottom. ❤
Joanie is very happy to have her new outfit. I was so touched by her kindness and generosity that I thought I would keep my eyes open for a Sasha studio outfit for Joanie. Guess what? I recently won an auction of a studio outfit and it arrived today in the mail! 😊
Here is a peek of Joanie’s outfit. She has not seen it yet. Do you think she will like it? Let me know if I should surprise Joanie with this outfit and hat too. 🌹
The blue top is not tagged but is nicely made. 😊
Her dress tag. 🌹
Thank you for visiting with us today. Gertie has joined her sisters Joanie and Gwennie and we all want to send you hugs and happy wishes for a wonderful weekend and week to come. 😊 xxx
