Well at least in the village! Today it is bright and very cold and windy! Which stands to reason because I wanted to dress my girls in some new clothes and take photo’s outside.
Well I was not giving up, so all was made ready and then it was a trip into the garden for a photo shot.
And of course as soon as I stood the first girl up for her photo the wind rose and swirled around!
I hope you enjoy the results and a warning there are a lot of photo’s!! so may be best to get a drink before starting to view…..

We begin at the Chat n Snap last October when I spotted this lovely pink linen button smock outfit by Sarah of Vintage Sasha which I snapped up and put away until now. It’s being worn by Raven by No Navel along with socks by Gill and shoes by Rosie Bloomfield.

Now I had seen a gorgeous teal green one on Sarah’s blog site but was to late to purchase it much to my regret because I adored the colour, so I was over the moon to find that Kendal had commission one for my clan for Christmas.

Here being worn by Martha my red haired No navel, the most gorgeous no navel in my opinion, she is also wearing Gill’s socks and Rosie Bloomfield shoes.

Now having these two outfits set me on an idea to have all my No Navel girls wearing Linen button smocks in a plain colour by Sarah, so having seen a Natural and also a lemon colour in her previous sales I asked if she could make me one in each .

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo here we have Ashley wearing the lemon one that Sarah kindly made along with Rosie shoes and socks by Petrana.

Now being very cheeky I went back to Sarah and asked what linen she had as I needed some more plain coloured button smocks for an idea I had for the blog. She said that she would search through her stash of fabrics make some up and I could chose what I wanted.
So the lovely Sarah did this and then sent me the photo’s and I said Thank you I will take them all! She was a little stunned thinking that I had only wanted a couple but I believe in striking while the iron’s hot as when would I ever get another chance to have such a select of colours. So they arrived in the post even the Orange one! yes Orange, Sarah tries to say it’s Coral but it is Orange! More about that one later…

There they are all six of my No navel girls wearing plain coloured linen button smocks by Sarah of Vintage Sasha , it is just what I was hoping for a lovely range of beautiful colour.
and I cannot quite believe that I had almost the right colour shoes and socks to go with each set! This comes from having been collecting for a few years now and making the decision to buy good shoes in a range of colours along with good socks also.
Gill if you are reading this I need a pair of lilac and a pair of mint green socks 🙂 but hold fast there could be more!!

Now all the girls in the plain colour button smocks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere is a close up of Sophie the only later girl in the line up. She was the last one I dressed because I am not a lover of Orange! So every time I put this smock up against a Sasha I decided it did not suit! and put it to one side then tried another colour until it was the last one… Sarah laughingly tried to tell me it was Coral! But if you are reading this Sarah the socks she’s wearing are CORAL the smock is Orange!!! I must say I nearly decided not to use it but when I found the apricot Jean Jensen shoes and the coral Gill socks it seemed to come together and looks quite nice on Sophie, so for now it stays.
I know you are wondering why did I buy that one if I’m not a fan of the colour but in the overall look of them all together it adds to that side of the colour range.

On the other end we have in purple Belinda with White Gill socks and Jean Jensen shoes. Jocelyn in Berry with Gill socks with a pink edge and Jj shoes and Paige in Natural with cream socks with a claret stripe by Gill and JJ shoes. Belinda is a 68 single fringe girl and Jocelyn a 68 full fringe girl and Paige a 69 Dungarees girl. I think these three colours go well together.

So here they all are again in their range of beautiful coloured Vintage Sasha Button smocks.I just need a pair of berry coloured shoes and toning socks along with a pair of purple socks, which I may have somewhere!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAALMOST! I should have moved Sophie at the end forward so we would see her and not just her lovely foot!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe last one with the sun but still a very cold wind but at least on the bench they are sheltered from being blown over.

With thanks to the wonderful Sarah for agreeing to make me the plain button smocks in all the colours she had available. Also thanks to Gill for making such a good colour range of socks but we need more !! lol I believe she is aiming for 300 assorted pairs for this years Chat n Snap!  To the late Jean Jensen for her wonderful range of shoes colours and also Rosie Bloomfield , we miss you ! xx

Now I do have three more Button smocks of Sarah’s but in a pattern fabric, maybe I’ll put them on my slate eyed girls tomorrow, although two of them belong to the twins  ! I’d best ask first!!
