Vintage Barbie RED KNIT DRESS

Forget the LBD (little black dress)

... its time for the RKD! 

The Red Knit Dress!!

This is my original Barbie - an early 1966 American Girl Barbie.

The butt markings on the American Girl Barbies differ and because mine has both raised and indented markings she is an early 1966.

She was nice enough to agree to model this dress I received many many years ago ... probably shortly after I received her!

And then I found this pattern book!  and it has the instructions for making this Red Knit Dress!!

I was very excited because I knew I could use photos of my Barbie in her Red Knit Dress in the listing when I sell this booklet in my Etsy shop, Vintage And Such.
