very special dresses
keeps saying that she has too many clothes for her Sashas and I reply, ‘same
here’, but it never seems to stop me from wanting more! (Doesn’t stop Gillian
either!). I think I am as much in love with the clothes, as I am with the
Sashas. Here is what I recently succumbed to.
Three lovely dresses, three amazing seamstresses, three happy girls!
Lara is showing off her bloomers!
Sophie is wearing a classic Ruthsdolls outfit. Beautiful match of fabric and colours. Beautifully made.
I love this Sasha style. So pretty and perfect for a little girl.
Tagan is wearing a dress by Jadzia. Sumptuous colours
and beautiful fabric.
This dress is also tied with a sash at the back. It is beautifully made.
But the outfit that takes my breath away is made by Petrana. It is extravagant in its conception and execution. The pictures I took do not do it justice. The dress is over-exposed and the detail seems lost.
It comes with a petticoat and bloomers, a scarf to tie round the hair and some diaphanous ribbons to tie round the waist. I suppose I am enchanted with it, because it is a little ‘folksy’ when taken as a whole. But when simply worn as a dress, it has a different feel altogether.
Here it is without the ribbons and petticoat, and with just the bloomers.
But it is the detailed work on this dress which is so impressive. A lot of skill has gone into it and it is exquisitely sewn. Just beautiful.
I am delighted with all three outfits. We are so lucky that there are such wonderfully skilled people sewing for our Sashas. I consider these to be works of art in their own right. No wonder we are all hooked and can't get enough of these enchanting clothes.
