In this post we are going to start with my course dolls. Course dolls were made by students attending courses run by Sasha Morgethaler and her assistant Trudi Loffler-Roos. The courses were open to the women of Zurich and were held in Sasha Morgethaler’s studio. Sasha did not make any of the course dolls herself.
This is Polly and she is the first course doll I owned, she has beautiful brown eyes and a human hair brown wig, originally her wig would have been made of Hemp or Raffia. She is wearing an outfit by Ruth Dolls.
My next course doll is Milly and I think her blonde wig is original, she has pale blue eyes and is wearing an outfit by Ruth dolls and shoes by Brigitte.
My next course doll is Peter a lovely boy, with brown hair ,green eyes and freckles, he came in the outfit he is wearing.
Here we have my studio doll, called Inge. I feel very lucky to have Inge, she is a portrait studio doll and I was lucky enough to re-home her from her original family. Her story is on this blog in great detail should you wish to read it. Inge is wearing an outfit by Marilyn Hotchkiss and shoes by Ruth dolls. I never thought I would be lucky enough to own a studio doll, let alone one with red hair,blue eyes and freckles.
Next up is a little softie whom I commissioned from Janet Myhill-Dabbs, an interpretation of a studio Bebe.
She usually cuddles up with Inge.
Another one of my softies that I adore is Janet’s interpretation of Pierrot . I also loved the Harlequin outfit Janet made so I asked her to make one for Pierrot and she loves it too.
This year at the Sasha Celebration weekend I was the lucky winner of another of Janet’s studio interpretations.
Turn round little sister
Well that concludes my collection for now , but I am sure a couple more will be added at some point, it would be rude not too. I hope you have enjoyed seeing My Dolls.
I make that 41 in total and you know I love even numbers!!!
