Today's doll is all cozied up in a nice coat. It wasn't very cold today anyway,so she barely even needed it!
She's Living Skipper.
She sort of has her hair down,(although I haven't taken the part out in the back). I like the way it looks from the front this way.
The outfit is actually two coordinating Best Buy fashions from 1976. The coat is 9121, and should have a black belt with a red buckle, and a matching Tam-O-Shanter with a black ribbon on top.
The dress underneath is from Best Buy #9122. It consists of a dress with black vest top with two red buttons,and a skirt part that matches the coat
She should have a white blouse under the dress,but I'm missing that.
Living Skipper is one of the least popular vintage Barbie family dolls.I've said this before,but I can't see why. Some Living Skipper dolls are really beautiful.Sometimes they did overdo the eyelashes,I'll admit.
|They have beautiful lips too.|
And Living Skipper had great posability. She has a twist waist that can also lean,jointed elbows(under rubber skin(,jointed wrists (exposed),and those wonderful bendy knees that were made to really bend in those days.
You may have seen some of my other Living Skipper dolls before. If not, you can see them HERE,HERE,and HERE.
See you tomorrow for another doll,if my back holds out.
