Product Code: 2789

  • Description

    Release Date: 1/1/1979

    Barbie® doll's evening ensemble had a touch of peasant inspiration. The velvety burgundy dropped-waist dress had sheer rose and purple stipple print nylon sleeves and skirt. The skirt was lined in peach tricot. The outfit's sleeves and hem were accented with burgundy "velvet" with a golden braid. Golden braid also accented the neckline. A golden braid belt had a golden vinyl buckle with a golden bead. Her burgundy "velvet" hat was trimmed in the tricot and golden braid. A tiny "velvet" bag with a golden soutache braid handle and strappy, translucent, day-glow pink open-toed heels completed the ensemble.
