End-of-Season Clearance - Bargains for Sasha!

At last I've found the time to update the website! Since the Sasha Celebration, I've been busy trying to catch up on numerous tasks - mainly in the garden - which have been neglected over the last few years because I've been busy sewing! But they can wait no longer, as we are hoping to put our house up for sale next year and move away to clean air and the countryside.

Part of any house-selling project is decluttering, which for my part means downsizing Sasha - our dining room looks more like a factory, I have more fabric than I will ever use, and I don't really need 25 dolls for modelling, if I'm honest with myself, so I have decided to retire some of them and the first few are for sale below. And as for the fabric? Well, I have been sewing now and again during the summer. There is a grand plan to reduce the stash by four large bags by the end of the year, plus finishing off boxes of half-completed projects. I've been making good progress on the latter, although I did cheat a bit by throwing a few away. But I've been so focused on finishing things that I overlooked the fact that they actually need to go on the website in order to move them on - and now it's the end of the summer! Therefore, I've decided to have an end-of-season clearance, so there are bargains to be had. Many of the outfits have not been presented for sale before, although a few were brought home from the Sasha Celebration Weekend, so I have based the reduced selling prices on what similar outfits were being sold for there. Who knows, we may get an Indian Summer yet!

 
 

Dolls for Sale !

Looking for a new home. £30 plus postage - Sold

This little fella requires a bit of TLC. I bought him with the intention of rerooting him, but that was a while ago, and although I have rerooted a couple of my dolls, I quickly discovered that that's the easy bit and I am a hopeless hairdresser, so he is looking for a new home with a mother or father who is somewhat more talented than I am!

He has a few other issues, and although he's not quite the grubby little chap he was when he came here, he has obviously been well-loved and played with in his previous homes. He has one of those marks across his forehead which shines when the light is on it. No raised eyelids, although he is sexed, so mid/late seventies? His elastic is white, and although it is quite worn on one of his leg hooks, he holds a pose well and re-stringing is probably not in urgent need of replacement. His hair was chopped beyond rescue when he came here so I have just evened it up ready for either a wig or 'the works'!

Sasha Brunette 'Red Dress' with NON-FALLING HAIR!    

Being retired from her successful modelling career, this young lady has been with me since 2010 - she was my first big Sasha. She came from Shelly's website wearing her original red dress and pants, and a pair of white cowboy boots with broken zips, although the boots have long gone!

IMG 1068   IMG 1071
As a Red Dress, she is from 1975 onwards and has the smaller silver wrist tag and a ring neck assembly. During her stay with me, she has been restrung by Lisa Hartley. She has very light playwear and her face paint is good, but her biggest asset, especially as a brunette, is her beautiful shiny NON-FALLING hair.

She will bring with her her original red dress and pants. The dress has velcro fastenings and has been washed and pressed, although the shirring elastic at the wrists and yoke has perished. She prefers to wear her Dollydoodles jeans and smock top, which were made specially for her to take with her to her new home. Her spotty smock top has puff sleeves which are elasticated at the cuff, and a fake button band down the front. It opens at the back, fastening with tiny press studs under buttons and is fully-lined. Her slim-fit cotton jeans have double top-stitch detail down the leg seams and a fake fly front opening, topped off with a heart-shaped button on the waistband, which is partially elasticated. The jeans have real cut-away pockets at the front, and patch pockets on the back. Her red trainers are commercially-made.

She will come to her new home with both her original dress and pants and her Dollydoodles outfit (worth £50), for £195 plus postage, or if you prefer, she will travel with just her original outfit for £160 plus postage. I am happy to post overseas.
 

Sasha Blonde 'Long Dress'

Also being retired from her modelling career is this Sasha 'Long Dress'. She has been with me almost as long as the brunette lady above and also came from Shelly's website.
IMG 1066   IMG 1065
She has her original stringing - dark brown elastic in her legs and white for her arms, and this is in good condition. She dates from 1975 onwards and wears the smaller silver wrist tag. She has very light play wear and good face paint, and her straight hair, which I believe to be typical of the 'Long Dress' girls, has the two-tone blonde colouring
IMG 1021   IMG 1067
Her green 'long dress' is in reasonably good condition with little sign of fading and has velcro fastening. It has been washed and pressed. She also has her ribbed knickers and white ballet pump-style shoes.

She has had a new Dollydoodles dress made specially for her to take to her new home, which has matching panties and is worn with white ankle socks and brown Mary Jane-style shoes. The dress has a piped trim around the base of the curved yoke and it opens at the back, fastening with tiny press studs under little buttons.

She can be purchased for £210 with her original dress and shoes plus her Dollydoodles outfit (worth £30+), plus postage, or £190 plus postage in her 'Long Dress' outfit only. I am happy to post overseas

 

 

Welcome

Welcome to the Dollydoodles website, where you will find a variety of outfits which have been specially made for the Sasha and Gregor dolls. Although some of the Sasha dolls are around fifty years old, my designs are influenced by what young children are wearing today. Dollydoodles outfits are unique as they are made from my own patterns, from scratch and great care is taken to achieve a perfect fit. I work predominantly with cotton jersey fabric and designs often feature a machine-embroidered motif. All fabric is new and unused. Dollydoodles is just me and my sewing machine and is a hobby, not a business. Therefore, my output is limited and for this reason, I do not undertake commissions or special orders.

Dollydoodles outfits for Sasha and Gregor dolls are made for the adult collector's market and may contain small parts which make them unsuitable for playthings for very young children.

If you wish to buy an item from the website, please read purchasing instructions on the Info page and email me at the address below. The website is updated manually so there may be a time lag before an item is marked 'Sale Pending' or 'Sold', although I respond to emails as soon as possible. I am UK-based so don't forget to let me know if you are an international customer as this can hold up a purchase. Response to emails may also be delayed by time differences.

Navigating the site

The website has separate pages for each of the dolls, but basic wardrobe items are now listed together with the one-offs, on the individual doll pages.Please use the tabs along the top of the Home page to access each page. Although there will be links to pages from the menus lower down, these have not yet been set up, so will not work at present.

Please be aware that this website is updated manually and there may be some delay in items being marked as 'Sale Pending' or 'Sold' during busy periods or overnight

 
Please take a few moments to read through the following, which concerns ordering.
 

New Listings

I am very aware that demand for clothing for the Sasha and Gregor dolls far outweighs supply, and I hate having to tell would-be customers that the item they would like to buy has already been sold. Dollydoodles outfits are sold on a first come, first served principle and I do not have a regular day for listing new items. I am often asked to notify people when I am going to put new outfits on the site, but I'm afraid I always refuse as this could take all day - and what if I missed someone out?!
 

Commissions and Special Orders

I do not take commissions or make items to order. Dollydoodles is a hobby - or at least it is meant to be! - and my relaxation and enjoyment is in creating something new and different rather than sewing the same thing day after day. I did try commissions before I had the website, over five years ago now, but soon found it very stressful trying to keep up to date with orders as well as fitting in whatever else life threw at me. So please don't ask me to make something special - I have to be fair to everybody so however hard you plead a special case, my answer will always be 'no', and that may offend.
 

Re-selling

In the interests of fairness, I would like to discourage the practice of buying Dollydoodles outfits for the purpose of reselling. Of course, once an item has been sold, the buyer is entitled to do as they like with it, but it seems to me to be very unfair when 'customers' are buying several outfits at a time purely for the purpose of reselling them, whilst other would-be purchasers miss out time and time again. Please note that if it comes to my notice (or is brought to my notice, as has happened),that an opportunist is at work, then I will refuse to sell to that person, or to any person making purchases on their behalf.
