1983 Sindy Outfits and Separates is now online

1983 Sindy outfits and separates is now online.  It has been a very enjoyable year to write about, we remember these outfits very well as young women. They were mad, often theatrical and very flamboyant. So with all these gorgeous outfits,  why did we choose ‘Candy Stripe”? Because it’s Andy Pandy dungarees, who didn’t love Andy Pandy dungarees, they were just great!

1983 was very interesting to write about, although we can’t say the same really for the number of plastic poppers that can be found this year, they were a real pain. Although we are experienced Sindy dressers, some of these plastic poppers are very hard to open and close, and keep closed. You can see how these garments, particularly the ones made from the more fragile fabrics, might have suffered. We also try not to think about how mint outfits we opened for this year, but we think it was worth it and we hope you do too!

There are bound to be typos, it’s a lot of writing and mistakes creep in. Do let us know and we will sort them out. If you have any observations on this year, please do get in touch.

Thank you to Basia in Spain for the rebranded ‘Western’ Sindy, and Sky for your contribution to ‘Pop Singer’, and enormous thanks to Lone in Denmark and Starla for your help with those pesky blonde boxed dolls, the page couldn’t have been completed without you.

To maintain consistency between pages, 1982 ‘Western’ has now been updated to show the Sindy in her old packaging. Thank you Lone. We have also taken the opportunity to show Kathy’s lovely ‘Skater’ variations which she finally found on one of her many disks!

Elsewhere in the Museum:

1963 ‘Pony Club’ has now been substantially revised to show all five ‘Pony Club’ jackets. It will probably always be the case that we need to update and refine pages as we learn more stuff.

Finally, we were able to add the Reliable Mary Poppins alternative outfits thanks to Gail in Canada. Lovely outfits and dolls, it was surprise to know that there were two variations to the ‘Jolly Holiday’ outfit and they are beautiful. Thank you Gail for all your hard work on this.
