Me N My Doll Skipper

Posted by helen on April 7, 2018

I don’t know how many siblings Barbie has,  I know  Skipper is one of them, but she has never impressed me, I would say I like little Kelly much better –Kelly reminds me of Shirley Temple.

I made the “Me N My Doll” Fashion Set for my  poor Skipper to match Barbie’s “Dancing Doll”  dress.  now  my April Calendar  has come to life.

I thought I’d finish this dress within 2 hours, but it dragged on for 2 days.  as these extra little things made me lose patience.  I looked through eBay sellers’ pictures and found the dress comes with a petticoat. unbelievable! so I had to make it–even the dress doesn’t really need a underskirt. nowadays even a collectible doll like Silkstone black dress does not have a petticoat. oh, there is a pair of white socks, too.  its just too tedious…

I went to TRU looking for a Miniature doll, and found a 2″ Miniature American Girl suits perfectly, its made by Mattel, too.   The mini doll is more poseable than Skipper.  her arms open, legs move,  Skipper has this stiff body, she can only stand straight.

I probably should give the mini doll rooted hair, but I’m done.  no more needles and threads,  its time for TV news,  I want to watch how Trump Tower caught fire twice within 3 months (Jan 8 & April 7, 2018)

All the higgledy-piggledy (oh, well, I forgot to throw in the hairband)
