Doll-A-Day 203: Skipper Saturday: Java Brown Sausage Curl Skipper

  Today's Skipper Saturday doll is a java brown Sausage Curl.


 This doll needed redone when I got her, but her 'sausages' turned out beautifully.


 She has little 'spit curls; at the sides of her face.



It would have been interesting to see some titan Sausage Curl Skippers, but they only came in blonde or java brown.

This girl needs a few eyelashes replaced, and her twist and turn waist is a little loose. Otherwise she is pretty nice.

She's wearing Jeepers Creepers from 1969-70.


Jeepers Creepers consists of the top, 'pedal pusher' pants, clear red plastic visor with blue fabric tie...


...striped rubber ball, and light blue flats.

There's one button on the back.


I don't have the ball. It's hard to find. And my girl preferred to play barefoot on this hot summer day.


 A boat is nice to play with when it's hot: in the water.



And of course, an ice cream soda can help to cool you off.

There are two versions of Jeepers Creepers. The one this girl is wearing is the printed fabric version. The dots and stripes are printed on to the fabric.


The version she is holding is one where the dots and stripes are woven into the fabric.

And yes, she borrowed Francie's hanger. She couldn't be bothered to dig out her own.
It's easy to tell which version you have.The dots and stripes are sometimes faded or worn off on the printed version. Mine is a little worn. Or just turn the pieces wrong side out. The printed dots and stripes don't show as much on the back of the fabric. The woven in dots and stripes are easy to see.

I'm not sure if I'll be posting for the next few days. We're taking a couple of days' vacation before Ivy goes back to school.
