Shown only in the 1959 booklet, this is one of the three most desirable outfits from the 900 series (The others are Gay Parisienne #964 Roman Holiday #968). The apple print, polished cotton sheath dress (identical to the Apple Print Sheath Set #917) was combined with a smart black faille unlined spring coat. The back gathered into the yoke and the big patch pockets had self-bow accents. Barbie® doll's headband hat was a simple bow fashioned from silk organza. Other accessories included a black patent clutch bag, graduated "pearl" necklace, matching earrings, short white tricot gloves, and black open-toe pumps.
