It's Sunday; why don't you come over for coffee.

Suburban Chicago, January 1966. Mom entertains a friend in Tatjana's corner of the living room. Barbie's the doll now wearing the fashion folkdress. Mom's still working on the red mohair sweater she wore the following summer in Glacier.

(Also on the table is this photo of my great-grandparents.)

Didn't Mattel do a series of Barbies in folk dress at one time?

I don't know whether Mattel did that; this Barbie was dressed by us.
