In the previous post, I shared this photo of new additions to our Sasha family and explained that Cathy Himmel and I had exchanged dolls at the Sasha Festival in Cincinnati that resulted in Shelly returning home to Sasha Shangri-La. Shelly is shown here in the center wearing her original outfit. She is a BIV studio doll.
Shelly came home with me after the Cincinnati Festival and Cathy sent with her a beautiful red studio dress made by Ruth Hartley. The dress was inspired by an original studio dress made of fabric from Trudi’s Pajamas. How nice is that! I love the way fabric and materials were recycled in Sasha’s studio.
Next, you see a photo of the original studio dress shown in the book “Sasha-Puppen Sasha Dolls” by Stefan Biffiger.
However, we still needed bloomers, socks and shoes to go with the red dress and so I contacted Ruth and she made them up quickly to complete this wonderful studio outfit.
Here is Shelly wearing her version of the red dress.
The bloomers are a wide white and red check, knitted stripy socks, and brown leather studio style shoes. I am thrilled with this outfit!
It is perfect for Shelly.
Shelly up close.
You can see Shelly has a bracelet on both wrists.
Her identification bracelet was made by Beth, Cathy’s daughter at the Rochester Festival.
On her left wrist is her Sasha tag.
A lovely book of inspiration gifted by a dear friend. Shelly and I are reading it together.
Shelly selected a lovely knitted shawl for herself and it was made by Diane Duke.
Shelly in her shawl. This will come in handy very soon as we approach Fall.
A beautiful way to stay warm.
I especially love this photo of Shelly.
