Standing in at 11.5" is Tuesday Taylor! As you already know, lots of people confuse her with bigger fashion doll, Tiffany Taylor. Tuesday has the same hair function, the swivel crown that can be turned to give her blonde or brunette hair.
Taylor Jones, a black version of Tuesday, has black and bright auburn hair.
I thought you might enjoy seeing what Tuesday looked like in 1977, what kind of clothes Ideal produced and all of her real estate!

Flip... it's summer! Flip again, it's winter!
I've always wondered what beach the summer house was on and at the base of what mountain her winter home sat. (c:
What a lucky girl! Tuesday even has a penthouse apartment!
Here is a 1978 pattern that lists Tuesday as one of the dolls that can wear the items made from it. This is a "two-sized" pattern. When one uses the smaller sizes, it will dress Donny and Marie, Farrah,Wonder Women, Ken, Sonny and Cher, Superstar Christy, Ballerina Cara and Tuesday Taylor. All of these dolls were in the 11.5 - 12" size category.
It also lists "Chrissie" (no doubt a reference to the 1977 Magic Hair Crissy doll with her name spelled incorrectly), "Tiffany Taylor" and "Super Barbie." These are the dolls that can wear the larger clothes made from this pattern.
Here's a bonus for YOU! Please click on the pattern picture and it will launch into a PDF that you print out! Please use legal size paper as some of the pages are big. Also, choose "print actual size" on your printer options or the pieces won't the correct size. Have fun!
