1969 Patch Outfits and Separates
No new outfits were released for Patch in 1969 but nearly all her original outfits and separates were still available. Some were slightly modified perhaps because some of the little accessories were becoming harder to source. For the sake of completeness the main differences between the 1969 style leaflet and previous leaflets are listed here.
1966’s ‘Bedtime’ was now listed as ‘Bedtime Duo’ and seemed to only be her nightdress and dressing gown. No mention was made of her sponge bag, accessories or slippers (although the slippers are pictured) as described in previous style catalogues.
1967’s ‘Half Term’ was now called ‘Half-Term Togs’ and her little kitten was not shown or described.
1967’s ‘Tobbogganing’ was now renamed ‘Tobbogan Time’. It looks the same but there are no white mittens in the picture or in the description. We do not know if they were included.
1967’s ‘Hockey’ was now called ‘Hockey Honey’. It looks to be unchanged.
1967’s ‘Flannel Dress’ was renamed ‘Snug Red Flannel’.
1968’s ‘Casual Shift’ and ‘Winter Dress’ were not shown.
Just like Sindy, a value pack was now available called Patch’s “Party and Play” Pack (Ref 9PM).
This pack contained Patch in her ‘Dungarees’ outfit together with her ‘Birthday Party’ outfit – see 1966 Patch Outfits and Separates
It also contained her lucky boot charm for Sindy’s bracelet see 1968 Patch Outfits and Separates
Perhaps this pack was produced to shift excess stock of Patch and her Birthday Party outfit?
