1968 Vintage Skipper Clothes

1968 Vintage Skipper Clothes included eight brand new ensembles along with the introduction of Twist 'n Turn Skipper Doll. None of the ensembles from previous years were carried over and none of these fashions from 1968 were continued into 1969. Some of these ensembles and accessories can be hard to find because they were only made for one year. In addition to the regular eight fashions, there were two Sears Exclusive Gift Sets - one that included a TNT Skipper doll and one that was clothing only.
