In 1973 when I adopted my first Sasha family there were not many outfits available to dress them in. Thankfully, Yvonne at "dollsandreams" imported outfits from Europe and bought doll fashions from local sewers and knitters. Looking back it was amazing how those local "designers" totally captured the spirit of Sasha dolls.
The two outfits in the photo above were created in the early 70s by one of Yvonne's local sewers. They seem to capture some of the essence we often see in Sasha's studio dolls that depict local children in everyday outfits.
We are so fortunate today to be able to see many of the studio dolls created by Sasha as well as those created by Trendon and Gotz. And we still have wonderful designers creating new and original fashions for our dolls.
The world has changed a lot since 1973 but Sasha dolls still inspire us with love and creativity.
