  • Description

    Release Date: 1/1/1978

    Barbie® doll's gypsy-inspired vested dress featured a long-sleeved bodice with a high collar, long raglan sleeves, and elasticized cuffs. The full skirt featured a border of the same fabric, sewn horizontally. A red vest was trimmed in black looped braid, as were the border and the sleeves of the dress. Red trim also accented the sleeves. A velvety black waistband and tie accented the waist. Shown are two fabric combinations: yellow print (like #2218) with a colorful floral stripe, and a solid golden yellow bodice with a predominantly red, white, blue, and green floral stripe. All of the fabrics were woven.
