|Sasha #108 circa 1979-1986, redressed in a yellow floral print dress|
I began looking for Sasha's original white dress after her sister arrived in May 2014. This Sasha arrived in June 2011 wearing the missing dress that I stored after dressing her in the extra yellow floral print dress the seller sent. I thought the yellow complemented her complexion and red hair.
After three years, I wanted to redress her in the original dress, but could not remember where I stored it. I looked high and low, in every nook and cranny of the doll room, in every doll trunk where clothing for dolls her size is stored. I could not find it until the day of this post (almost a year after the search began) when I decided to store a smaller doll's clothing in an Effanbee doll trunk.

This particular trunk has always (as far as my memory could stretch) been empty. As soon as I opened the trunk I shouted (in my head), "There-it-is!"

I haven't redressed Sasha just yet; but when I am ready to do so, I will know where to locate her white dress. I have documented here and in the description column for her entry on my Excel spreadsheet where I stored it: White dress is stored in Effanbee trunk.
