The Japanese toy marketplace for Barbie produced plenty of fashions in 1967 that were not directly sold within the United States. Some of the outfits were refashioned from previous releases. These Vogue Pak outfits included sheath and full-skirted dresses, pantsuits, jumpers, skirts, coats and dress-suits. Just like the previous year, Mattel released Barbie clothes (in the Best Purchase or Get-Ups ‘N Go packaging) in numbers; no longer using particular names to explain (most of) the ensembles. Barbie, Steffie, Kelley, P.J. and the one-of-a-form Babs doll had many choices!
These outfits tended towards the mod style of the decade (i.e. clear raincoats, bright colours, geometric designs, and vinyl) like Trend Shiner and had been also modeled on Jackie Bouvier Kennedy’s impeccable fashion (pillbox hats, pale suits, and A-line overcoats) like Crimson Flare. Vacation Dance (#1639, 1965-1966); white and metallic gold horizontal-striped evening robe with orange braid straps and an orange chiffon sash with large ribbons. A gold clutch purse, long white gloves and closed-toe white pumps went with the outfit.
Silken Flame (#977, 1960-1964); strapless sweetheart” costume with a red velvet bodice and white satin skirt. A gold belt with matching purse and open-toed footwear completed the outfit. Wow! I by no means knew there was so much to know about Barbi’s garments. A few of them look familiar though. Thanks for the reminiscences. Twist ‘n Flip (#1165); Stacey’s unique outfit was a purple one-piece swimsuit that cut out on the waist. The bodice was fashioned with white buttons.
This was nice information about barbie. That is the primary time for me to know about the barbie pregnant. They seems so cute and delightful, especially the infants inside. Thanks for writing and share with us. Good job and rated up! Tailored Tops (1966-1967); a Barbie print” or white physique shirt, sleeveless white or crimson tank. Beau Time (#1651, 1966-1967); the pink and blue plaid-patterned taffeta gown had a zipper in the back and enormous crimson bow within the front.
