The Barbie Collection Description[]

Release Date: 1966

"An elegant luncheon at the most exclusive restaurant in town called for this beautiful ensemble. The soft pink jacket dress was perfect for the occasion. The dress bodice was pink satin and the sheath skirt was fashioned of a textured weave pink cotton, which was lined. The back zipped. A matching jacket of cotton had a satin collar, border and jabot with "diamond" pin. The hat was an elegant design in satin. It featured a rolled brim gathered to the crown. There were decorative flowers in the back and a grosgrain ribbon covered inner headband to hold the hat in place. Long white tricot gloves and pale pink closed-toe shoes completed the sophisticated ensemble.
