Her hair is a beautiful shade of red.
Since September is (To an oldie, like me, anyway.), back to school month, she's wearing yet another Skipper fashion with 'school' in it's title. It's School Days, from 1964.
|Nothing like a nice evening knitting by the fire...when you're 10 years old..|
Why this outfit is named School Days is beyond me. It came with a wooden bowl of yarn, and coordinated with Barbie's Knitting Pretty fashion. It should have been Time to Knit or something.
School Days consists of the pink sweater,white short sleeved blouse, pink pleated skirt,usually pink, but sometimes white, nylon knee socks,squishy back flats, and the wooden bowl of yarn.
|The sweater is being modeled by her barefoot friend. By the way, the chair is an Only Hearts Girls chair.|
I've heard that the pink socks are the more rare colour, but personally, all I've ever run into is the pink ones.
The sweater is wool and is notorious for moth holes and shrinkage.(Not the Seinfeld kind...)
|This one has definitely seen better days.|
The first vinyl reproduction Skipper came in the Knitting Pretty Reproduction Gift Set, which also included a repro swirl Barbie. They were dressed in School Days and Kniting Pretty, and both were titian.
|I don't care much for this Skipper reproduction.|
Tomorrow we'll take a look at a new doll.
