Identifying Vintage Francie Doll Clothes Fashions Japanese
While many of the USA outfits sold for the 11 1/4" tall Francie
doll and other same sized friends were the same in the Japan market, there were
some outfits sold exclusively in the Japanese market or the outfits were
slightly different than the outfit sold in the USA. That makes these
clothing and accessory items both rare and costly.

1967 Japanese booklet showing Francie doll
Francie doll, DS2240 Ball Gown 1967, this is probably the most glamorous
full length gown created for the Francie sized dolls, it is made from a gold
and white brocade fabric with a halter top that ties at the neck, full
orangish red taffeta underskirt with big ruffles that showed in front, as
the brocade fabric is slightly shorter than the full length in back, an
orange sash that tied in back at the waist, white plastic clutch purse,
short white tricot gloves, graduated pearl necklace, low soft white heels &
an eyelash brush. This outfit was only sold in the Japanese market.
The brocade fabric used for
Francie's gorgeous gown is the same as was used in both Barbie's 911 Golden
Girl 1959-1962 and 961 Evening Splendor 1959-1962
outfits, however, it has now been turned inside out. Amazing that
they had any fabric left over after four years of producing those two outfits.
