This magnificent two-piece ball gown was fit for the most elegant of Barbie® doll's evenings! A red velvet tunic with fitted bodice and flared skirt had two "diamonds" adorning the front closure. The underskirt was fashioned of a gauze underskirt topped by a lace-edged taffeta skirt with a ruffle of tulle accented by tiny red grosgrain bows. (The underskirt is fragile and the bows fade to orange if exposed excessively to light. ) Red open-toe shoes and long white nylon gloves completed the ensemble.
