"Barbie® doll first demonstrated her culinary skills in the great outdoors at her very own barbecue! She stayed cool in her crisp sundress of dusty rose broadcloth with a full skirt and fitted bodice. Details included button accented shoulder straps and crocheted-look edging on the neckline and armholes and pocket tabs on the skirt. Barbie® doll flipped hamburgers and hot dogs galore (none included! ) with the real metal utensils held in the three pockets on her bibbed white apron! Her utensils included a spoon, knife, and spatula with red plastic handle tips, a wooden rolling pin with red painted handles, and a red and white checkered potholder with a loop for hanging. Barbie® doll topped off her ensemble with a billowy white chef's hat and white open-toe high heels!"
