Whilst searching eBay for vintage clothes this morning I came across a beautiful orange 60's dress. Excitedly, I clicked on it, only to find that it was a miniature item of clothing for a Skipper doll! And I think I have found a new love.
The Skipper doll was introduced in 1964 as Barbie's younger sister. I much prefer her more realistic face and proportions to those of Barbie doll. Not only that, but her clothes seem to be 10x cuter! Just look at those little minidresses - I know I'd love one in my wardrobe!
I had a bit more of a search and found even more gorgeous miniature vintage clothes that I thought I'd share with you...
The unfortunate thing is that most of the outfits sell for well over £30 - a bit more than my budget would allow! But if I was to invest in anything then it would definitely be Skipper fashion.
I was also amazed to find mini sewing patterns for Skipper clothes. I wouldn't mind having a go at making some out of some of my spare material!

P.S. Thankyou so so much for all of your advice for cameras. This is one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make! I would love to be able to experiment with manual settings, but I think a DSLR might be too bulky for me. So I'm probably going to go for a normal Canon digital camera (maybe a G9/G10, or a PowerShot SX200 IS). Although I'm quite attracted to the Sony Cyber-shot H50... oh no, decisions decisions!
