Gwennie Redressed and Gwennie Greets Gigi

I hope most of you remember Gwennie from previous posts on the Sasha Shangri-La blog. I recently was lucky to find a few pieces of vintage clothing on ebay plus a couple of pieces on Shelly’s Sasha doll UK site. I thought the ebay clothing might fit a studio or course doll and I had dear Gwennie in mind. πŸ™‚

Gwennie came to me wearing this untagged sage green dress and pants that fit her nicely but they were faded and a bit worn. Still, I thought the outfit was appropriate for Gwennie who has her own signs of wear so Β I kept her in the outfit for years now only adding a green duffle coat a few years ago.

Here she is! The white blouse is from Shelly’s site. The darling plaid skirt is from ebay. It fits her perfectly, even the snap at the waist is just right. πŸ™‚

image
Gwennie is looking happier I think! πŸ˜‰

image

She is probably thinking…”About time Mummy!” πŸ˜‰

Gwennie a bit closer. ❀

image
Gwennie’s legs but who is this????

image
Gwennie would like you to meet her sweet sister Gigi.  Gigi was one nickname that I had as a child. ❀

Gwennie and Gigi up close. πŸ™‚

Gwennie gave her Steiff boar to Gigi to hug and feel loved. ❀

Gigi joined the family last year and is only now overcoming her shyness and sensitivities to daylight and be able to say hello to you today. Gwennie has been by her side all of this time and has helped Gigi adjust to life here at Sasha Shangri-La. Prior to joining us, Gigi was stored for many years since the early 1970’s when she was bought in a large grouping of dolls and put away. Β Now, Gwennie is her sister and best friend! ❀

Both girls are BIII studio dolls with gypsum heads. πŸ™‚

Gigi’s outfit was made by the talented Thu Cuc Faes. Gigi came to me only wearing a shirt and I dressed her in this outfit for Spring and summer. Her leather shoes are vintage and I found them on Shelly’s site. πŸ™‚

image
Gigi wore the nice plaid flannel dress last Fall and over the winter. It was made by Christine Meatyard. πŸ™‚

Gwennie slipped on the blue wool felt jacket that came with her skirt from ebay. What a nice set. πŸ™‚

Both girls look happy together. πŸ™‚

Gigi up close. Gigi has a smudge by the bridge of her nose to the right side as you look at the photo. Β She also has a few dings near her ears that are nicely covered by her hair. πŸ™‚

image
A nice pair there! πŸ™‚

image
Gwennie’s duffle coat fits perfectly over her blue jacket. That will be nice when winter comes around. πŸ™‚

image
Dear Gwennie. ❀

image
Both girls again.

Gwennie and Gigi are sending your hugs and happy wishes for the week to come. We thought we would end this post with a few watercolors of the “G” sisters.
