I have some more Christmas goodies to share with you all. My dad has given me vintage dolls for the last few years. He bought all of these from a person who was liquidating their collection. And naturally, I don't mind. :)
I opened the present to see this lovely case.
And, of course, you can guess who was inside.
Blonde hair vintage Skipper! And I pretty much screamed when I saw what dress she was wearing. I bought this dress off of eBay to go with my wedding party set. The dress was a little worse for wear (bows were deteriorated) but the headband and the bouquet were intact. This dress is MINT (well except for the bow at the waist but I can fix that.)
Just love the vintage Skipper side eye look. Bangs are perfect.
Hair is shiny and beautiful. Just love her!
So, what I did is brought out my other vintage Skipper to do a quick dress swap.
My mom happened to be over at my dad's the day he was gathering some things up to put in the box for Christmas and she helped pick out some awesome outfits to fill Skippers box!
We first have the vintage!
Shirt and pants from 1965 Land & Sea
Tights and leotard from 1964 Masquerade
Dress from 1965 Platter Party
Raincoat from 1965 Rain or Shine
Dress from 1964 Silk n' Fancy. This is so cute!
Dress from 1965 Sunny Pastels. I bought this one last year to put on another vintage Skipper I have. Love this one!
1970 Lots of Lace. This is complete as I have the shoes too! (Well, i guess it comes with pantyhose and I don't have those.)
And the robe from 1964 Dreamtime.
There also were some genuine Barbie fashions in the case. Like these two shirt and skirt combos. Not sure if they are Barbie or Skipper fashions.
This swimsuit. Looks a little small for Barbie so it's most likely a Skipper suit.
This is an adorable homemade PJ set. Probably to go with the robe from Dreamtime.
And lastly we have a fashion that I can't find any ID on! It's not homemade and I can't remember if it had a tag on it or not. Any ideas on this mod Skipper outfit?
And also, we got some accessories for my little Skipper. Love all of these! The black shoes have a little tulle bow on the toes and the dark blue ones have a molded on bow. The pink ones look like Jellies!
And that's all for today! Are any of these vintage fashions some of your favorite to put on Skipper? Let me know in the comments!
Stay tuned for our next Haute Couture calendar post coming on 2/1!
