Today's Skipper Saturday doll is following the theme of Back to School we've been doing this month. She's a Bend Leg Skipper with very dark brown hair.
It looks black in these pictures, but it's really a super dark brown. Black is a really rare hair colour for Skipper's ,and this really dark brown is not very common either.
She is nearly perfect, except for some slight paint loss from her right eyebrow.
She's wearing School Girl, from 1965-66.
School Girl consists of a white blouse with red stitching and two red buttons, a red jacket with a pocket and crest and two gold bead 'buttons'...
...a red and white checked skirt...
Since I put the outfit on a bend leg doll, I didn't use the anklets. The socks are really hard to pull on to those rubber feet! It was hard enough to get the flats even partially on. She certainly couldn't get them on all the way without completely splitting them.
|I actually did NOT pose her with her feet on the desk rail. I only noticed she was that way when I looked at the pictures! Spooky...|
|'Student Teacher' was reproduced in 2009, along with the Swirl Ponytail Barbie.|
The rest of the school room is made up of some checked contact paper,a large floor tile, (for the wall), with some great 'map of the world' wall paper border taped to it.
|Of course Ivy commented on how strange it is that Skipper is the only kid in her class. I said she was taking private tutoring...|
I love that wall paper, and I have plans for it when I redo my 1/6 scale doll house. I have the Arithmetic book, but I could only find the 'Geography' book. (It's actually just a two sided piece of cardboard.) That ended up being perfect though, with the 'Geography' wall paper as maps!
Tomorrow is another doll, but a quick one. I need some rest!
