This is a PHOTOCOPY of a Vintage 1960s pattern to make doll clothes for your Francie Doll. Francie is Barbie's MOD cousin. This is the ONLY pattern that was specifically designed for Francie, however any Barbie pattern will fit her, but may need some slight adjustments. Francie is a slightly smaller doll than Barbie. Her measurements are: 11-1/4" tall, 4-5/8" bust, 3-1/8" waist and 4-3/4" hips. Barbie's measurements are 5-1/2" bust, 3-1/4" waist and 4-7/8" hips. So you can see that with some adjustments, this pattern would work well for Barbie also. In addition to Barbie, this pattern also fits a large variety of other Teen Age Fashion Model dolls some of which include: Francie, Francine, Midge, Barbara Joe, Babs, Gina, Annette, Stacy, PJ, and Christie. This pattern should also fit the 12" tall Tammy dolls (5-1/4" bust, 4" waist, 5-1/2" hips) also with minor adjustments.
This pattern makes: Dress, Petticoat & Cap; Nightgown; Loose fitting Dress; Dress with coordinating top and skirt; Dress & Cap; Coat, Cat & Boots; Shirt, Pants, Cap & Jacket; Panties. I include a color printout of the front cover, a black and white copy of the instructions, back cover and the complete pattern. Please email me with any questions that you have.

The Barbie Doll was first released by Mattel March 9, 1959 and production continues through this day. Due to Barbie's outrageous popularity, many companies made doll clothing patterns to fit her, her friends or competing Teen Age Fashion Model style dolls. That way mothers and their daughters could make additional outfits for their Barbie dolls. I know many grown women who have precious memories of making clothes for their Barbies with their mothers when they were little girls. I have a large assortment of patterns available, all of original fashions dating to the 1960s.
Barbie, she had many friends over the years such as Midge, Stacy, PJ and Christie. Many other Teen Age Fashion dolls have been made by other companies to compete with Barbie. The most notable was Tammy who was released in 1962 by the Ideal Toy Company. Barbie stands 11.5" tall, while Tammy is 12" tall, plus Barbie has a narrower waist and hips than Tammy. The size difference doesn't affect patterns much and they will all work for either Barbie, Tammy or any of their "friends", sometimes with a little bit of tweaking. I have a large assortment of patterns available, all of original fashions dating to the 1960s.
This pattern was originally created January 2, 1966. The copyright for this pattern has expired and it entered the public domain Jan 1, 1995.
