I recently bought an early Gotz who had some armholes that were on the point of  tearing on the body side of the armhole.  The metal hook was rubbing on the soft plastic of the lower part of the body armhole.  So I had some rubber soft tubing that I used to cushion the hook.   Here are photos of what I did.  This maybe 'old hat' to Sasha repair people but I thought I'd share how to protect the armhole.  Here are a few photos to show what I did.

My Sasha's have reclaimed me.  I'm going through all my pattern books, Sasha papers  and reorganizing and doing some thinning.  I've long neglected them although they are in several rooms here. Just made an outfit and put it on Facebook to sell  I'll post it here.

I've returned to my poor neglected Sashas. There was a small gathering of Sasha admirers in downstate Illinois a few weekends ago and that is what renewed my Sasha interest.  Never mind they've been staring at me all over the house. 
I've started looking them over and cleaning them.  Washing their hair and restringing three of them so far.  It's almost like rediscovering them as I go through their clothes and frankly can't remember buying some of them.
Here is the little redhead I talked about three years ago in my post.  He's wearing a knit outfit from the UK. Sorry I can't remember the knitter's name but it was probably off Ebay.

Having to miss the Sasha Festival this year, my Sashas felt sadly neglected. I've brought out the patterns and the camera and tried to cheer them up.  Once the patterns were out and the fabric stash rummaged through, the ideas started flowing and they all wanted to be redressed and photographed.  Here are a few of their outfits.  Some are on my Etsy site That's Sew Sandy and you can search them by putting in Sasha doll as a search word.
The summer is sweltering here. The weather man calls it a sauna outside as any Midwesterner knows a humid day can be here. The flowers are loving it as long as they get watered too.
Anxious to hear of the Festival news.  Can't imagine all the work Millie did on the smocked dresses. Her work is lovely and I'm fortunate to have a few of her smocked clothes for Sasha.
I've rewigged a poor ravaged blond baby boy that I got at a doll show for a very low price. I found a wig on ebay for $5 and took a chance and now he is a little redhead.  I'd watched ebay for a red headed baby only to see the prices got so high that I didn't bid. I'm pleased with how he turned out.
I've got more Sasha clothes to put on my models but my civic duty is is the way this week as I have jury duty to deal with this week.
How is your summer going?

It has been a challenging summer for me but however whizzed by at full speed.  Here the kids are back to school and school is let out early for 'hot' weather.  I've got new clothes for Gregor for sale and will take some orders.   He's sporting cargo pant shorts while the weather persists to be warm into the fall.   Here he wearing T shirts with shorts and sport shirts in pretty plaids, or shoud I say manly plaids for school days.  Pockets on cargo pants actually can stow away the random frog or pretty rock or other treasure he may find on his way to and from school.
Email for any questions...

Loving all the reports from the festival for Sasha in the UK.  I had to be content with my lovely new book  on Sasha clothes that luckily came the week of the festival so I could have a taste of Sasha lore.
One evening I spent cutting out copies from huge sheets from Kinkos so I could save the originals and have put them in a notebook for future use.
I had requests for sundresses for Sasha out of the London fabric so here are some samples of these.  I also found a companion British fabric in navy and red with symbols of the UK on it so made a dress out of that.   We have the London Summer Olympics to celebrate next so the UK print is relevant for most of the summer and some of us are just Anglophiles... hope that is the right word .... lovers of all things British. 
Take a peek and if you are interested in ordering please don't hesitate to order before my stash runs out or request a different print if you Sasha needs a sundress.
Welcome home to all the Sashas and their Mom's
