It may be Barbie Wednesday but today I am focusing on Barbie's little sister Skipper. She was introduced in 1964.



This is her Silk and Fancy outfit (1964-1965).


And this one is her Red Coat set (1964-1965). I think it's sad that in 1973 Mattel stopped naming it's fashions and began referring to them only by number.


Through out all the years of Barbie I am amazed at how well Skipper has managed to stick around!

Happy Wednesday, Lindsey

I remember having a Skipper doll, how I loved to play with her!. Unfortunately, I don't remember what happened to her.
Thank you for your lovely comment about my inspiration board.
Have a great weekend!

Happy 4th of July!

I love Skipper's red coat and matching handbag. My sister had the 1970's Skipper that grew up (and out).
