Kaleidoscope for Skipper

When I was a child, my sisters and I did not have a Barbie doll … instead, we had all her friends. Like Midge, Allen, Ricky, Julie, and the original Skipper doll with the red bathing suit. My theory is aunts and uncles assumed we already had Barbie, so for birthdays and Christmas we got the other dolls.

This week, I bought a reproduction Skipper doll. And some vintage Skipper sewing patterns. And then I started sewing. Instead of a traditional full skirt made from a rectangle, I followed the shape of the round hankie to take advantage of the design on the round hankie.

This fashion is available now in my Etsy shop.
