Today I thought I'd write about another of my Sashas who joined me in 2011.
This Sasha is a brunette from around the early seventies... she was described as such and this is her Ebay description.
This little Sasha Waif needs a little love and care :) She is an early 1970/71 waif
She has her original white stringing in her legs and can stand unaided. She has had her stringing in her arms replaced as you can see in the photos she can raise her arms above her head and they stay there!
She has a clean body, no chewed limbs, she has a few marks and scuffs from playwear as she has been somebody's little companion many years ago :)
All her face paint has oxidised, so you could either love her as she is or she would be an ideal candidate for a repaint.
She has lovely dark uncut hair it is nice and soft and stable... but like many early brunette dolls one or two hairs are lost when her hair is brushed...no more than a good real hair wig would lose.
She comes dressed in a red knitted snowman jumper, hat and matching mittens and a pair of black linen trousers from Betsy May and ribbed socks.
She needs a little understanding to blossom again. She is not mint, she is not perfect but she certainly has character :)
Any questions please ask before bidding as all sales are final and she is sold as is, I do not accept returns.
This was her Ebay photo. Her little face called out to me and whilst she was described as a waif because of the various scuffs and marks, to me she was just perfect! The best thing of all is she has gorgeous non-falling hair.
This is her 'arrival' photograph.
She became 'Molly' straight away named after a friend's lovely daughter. Molly arrived in February 2011.
I promptly set to making her some new clothes and it was fun going back to see what I made her!
I think I ran out of wool by the time I got to Peter's hat (Peter has long since left) as it is rather small!
Molly gets a lovely sweater made by Gill if I remember rightly.
In the summer she enjoyed skipping in the garden with Sasha. This photo features on my sidebar.
By 2012 my Sashas had rather increased - here is Molly with some of her brunette sisters,three of which still live her and three have long since left.
Experimenting with some more sewing.
These photos may be remembered by some from the outing we had during the 2012 Sasha Festival in Stratford Upon Avon. Molly and Emily enjoyed a game of hop scotch.
Valentines Day - Rory is rather sweet on Molly and gives her a card
She gives him a little kiss.
(Here you can see her gorgeous hair)
She is wearing a little frog brooch Rory gave her.
Taking a trip down memory lane also shows how my photographing the dolls has improved.
This pretty dress was received in the first Sasha Swap I took part in.
Another little dress I made.
As you can see Molly still had her green eyes here.
Later on I decided to try painting them back to nearer their original colour...I kind of wish I had left them green as actually they looked quite nice.
Wearing a dress I made for the winter/Christmas season.
Last year Molly enjoyed dressing up as Laura Ingalls for a fun day we had with DollMum
Molly models a cardigan and cap I made for a friend.
This is the winter dress Molly was dressed in today...she was very pleased to be changing out of it as it was quite warm today.
She is wearing her special necklace that I bought in Arizona last year.
Molly chose a lovely smocked dress by Karen to wear today.
She looks so pretty in it.
The dress is beautiful. Karen is another very talented smocker.
Molly is another of my most favourite girls.
