Two new Dollydoodle outfits for Sasha.

It's the girls turn to have a couple of Dollydoodle's Summer outfits with her new design of more feminine T shirts.

My 1967 Frido Blue or Brown Cord NP tries on this dainty white smock style top over the daisy flowered cropped leggings with JJ flip-flops completing the look.

I'm not 100% convinced that this is the best doll to suit this charming outfit so am about to try it on another doll who you can view further down.

This Sasha has obviously had a little hair trim along the way but personally I really like the length although I would have preferred the fringe to have been a little longer.

The next outfit is being worn by my 1966 Frido Jeans NP with dramatic eyes painted for the Frido factory by a Manchester Art Student. She is I believe featured in the new Sasha The History book.

This pink top is delightfully feminine and colour co-ordinates well with the pink/blue stripped cropped leggings, the blue stripe of which matches her eye colouring perfectly. Commercially made pink converses complete the outfit.

Now trying the top outfit on a 1990s Gotz Modern pale skinned doll, Stella, customised by Kelly Wenarsky as I think that her more up-to-date longer, straight hair suits this trendy look better.

I really love the way that Kelly gives some of her dolls tiny freckles. In this case I understand that she did them here to hide/camoflauge a slight shine mark to her face (on the right hand side cheek near to her nose bridge.)

Sick and tired of Ross' falling hair and increasing number of empty plugs so...........

So out came the scissors late one night and cut-cut....

....And on with one of Ted's unisex wigs that he so kindly gave me last year...until I can save up enough cash to have Jackie Rydstom re-root him with some blonde locks in a trendy style.

Ross is a petite and minty-ish 1969 Frido brunette Dark Jeans lad who had languished at the bottom of Shelly's website page one for MONTHS with no interest. I watched him daily feeling very sorry for him until I succumbed and he became one of my first Gregors.

He is such a well behaved little lad and my youngest looking Gregor.

He is well liked and somewhat 'mothered' by me and all the girls.

A new re-rooted doll by Jackie Rydstom arrives.

I have been admiring Sarah William's re-rooted Sasha models for some time now and so when I saw this Sasha of Jackie Rydstom's advertising a /SashaDollLtd Cora blue cord dress for sale on eBay I emailed to enquire about her doll model and was lucky enough to end up buying her.

The photos directly below are those taken by Jackie herself for me to see the re-rooted hair in detail as I was wanting a doll whose hair would easily plait/braid so that when she was out and about with me her hair wouldn't be blowing in her face as I was photographing her

As you can see her hair looks as good loose or braided.

Jackie even took photos showing her ability to wear lots of differently styled outfits.

I am thinking of calling her Annaliese.

As she arrived nudeI was wondering what sort of clothing that I already had here would suit her the best but...

....that problem was easily solved when this delightful Calico outfit designed and made by Betsy-May that I had just won off eBay arrived at exactly the same time.

I was a bit sceptical about the strawberry blonde hair going with the marroon parts of the material but I think that it really suits her colouring.

I just adore Betsy-May's little hat style on her.
