Identifying Vintage Francie Doll Clothes Fashions Japanese 1967-1969
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
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.
Francie doll, Plantation Belle
outfit for the Japanese
market. The dress is modeled after Barbie's # 966
Plantation Belle outfit (1959-1961) in a pastel pink and blue floral print on
a white background with rows of white lace and white soutache
braid on the round full skirt, white tulle half slip for fullness,
green and wheat straw hat with
a green ribbon, long white tricot gloves, white low closed toe
pumps and a green plastic hatbox with red, white and blue
stickers - that have Rome, London and Paris on the front.
This outfit was not available outside
of the Japanese market, exact date of issue is unknown ca. 1960s. Barbie also had a similar floral Plantation
Belle outfit, also exclusive to the Japan market.
